Montgomery History will present the final installment in the 100th Anniversary Dentzel Carousel Lecture Series at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 11, with a virtual class on “Painting Style of the Dentzel Carousel Company and Restoration Techniques.”

Rosa Patton will lead the session. She has been restoring carousels for 43 years, including the 20-year restoration of Glen Echo’s carousel.

She will address the painting style differences between carousel manufacturers, the types of paints used and the tools and brushes used for achieving the signature look of each company.

Participants can view the live painting technique demonstration to see how the company’s artists worked and how the techniques were used during the carousel’s restoration.
