Patsy Yager was selected the Cheyenne County Art Guild's "Artist of the Month." Her painting "Spring River" is on display at the Sidney Public Library through Dec. 14.

Patsy Yager, a Head Start teacher with a Master of Arts in Elementary Education, was selected the Cheyenne County Art Guild's "Artist of the Month" for December.

While Yager has had very little formal training in art, she has always had a love of art and a desire to create art. In 1998, Yager took a few oil painting lessons from Trish Corder at the Hardy, Ark., Spring River Art Gallery. From these, she learned a few of the basics of painting with oils.

After moving to Sidney, she enrolled at Western Nebraska Community College for some early childhood classes. As an elective, she took beginning drawing.

In 2013, Yager joined the Cheyenne County Art Guild and has had the pleasure of attending a few of the guild's art workshops. She recently began taking painting classes with Mark Leach, a Bob Ross-certified instructor.

"I find the different styles of art fascinating," Yager said.

After attending a watercolor workshop sponsored by the CCAG, she is looking forward to trying her hand with that skill as well.

Yaker's favorite subject matter is landscapes. She also likes to paint animals, pets and family members.

Her "Spring River" painting is on display through Dec. 14 at the Sidney Public Library. Other paintings and photography by her are on display at the Cheyenne County Community Center.
