This <br />class of community leaders will roll up their sleeves and participate in an “Outdoor Plein Air” workshop <br />painting a nature scene in the style of the renowned Florida Highwaymen. The artist selected to lead <br />this project is Rudy Drapiza, a well-respected artist in the Central Florida community. <br /> <br />Coming from a long legacy of professional artists that included his grandfather, father, and several <br />uncles, Rudy has painted almost daily for forty five years. Equally at ease with acrylics, oils, and <br />watercolors, his biggest impact has been as a muralist and often his soaring murals reach heights of <br />two stories or higher. Last year, Rudy worked with a group of AP art students from Lake Howell High <br />School in creating a large scale mural of an “Old Florida” scene on the wall of the racquetball court <br />located at Secret Lake Park. <br /> <br />Since 2002, the Casselberry Art House has been bringing people together for unique art experiences <br />and cultural enrichment programs for all ages. Located at 127 Quail Pond Circle behind the <br />Casselberry City Hall Complex, this 2500 square foot facility offers community space for art classes, <br />art exhibitions, educational programs, workshops, artist lectures and musical performances. <br /> <br />The Casselberry Art House is proud to host this event every year to bring awareness to the <br />importance of arts and culture in the community. <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> ### <br /> <br />
