Paint Your Pet Art Class for Adults
Provide us with a picture of your pet, and we will have a pre-sketched canvas ready for you to paint and take home! Kids have had a ton of fun with these programs so now we’re offering it to adults!  You must be 16 years or older to participate in this program.  Youth versions of this program are regularly offered at area schools.  This one-day evening program will be held on July 6, 2017.  The registration fee is $35.  Materials are provided. You must pre-register and provide us with a good photo of your pet (dog, cat, pony, bird, lizard, etc.) in advance. Space is limited. Registration will close when class fills, even if this happens before the deadline.  The deadline to register is 6/23/2017.

Wood Carving Raccoon Scene
Our wood carving programs are back for the summer and fall in partnership with Art from the Bark Studio!  Each project from the summer and fall can be taken as an individual program, but together they will form a connected scene with a raccoon, a hunter, and a hound dog. The scene will be accomplished in three carving sessions.  Each one of the sessions can be carved as a standalone piece. You don’t have to take all the classes. The ideas for this project come from Tom Wolfe's books, Country Carving.  That said, our instructor's style is unique, so don’t be surprised if it doesn’t look like the book.The individual prices for the programs are Raccoon: $38, Hunter: $48, Hound Dog: $48, however, if you register for all three programs before the start of the first class, the cost will be discounted to $120 total (a $14 savings).  All materials and wood-working tools are provided during the classes, which will take place at Art from the Bark Studio, 25419 Constitution Hwy, Rhoadesville, VA 22542.  Classes will be held on Tuesdays from 9am-Noon, with specific dates for each program listed above.  To learn more about wood carving, visit our instructor's website.

Concealed Carry Training Class
Concealed weapons are weapons which are kept hidden on one's person, or under one's control not accessible to view, which is a basic definition. The Sheriff’s Office understands that there are certain requirements that may be difficult for the average citizen to find training or classes that are inexpensive. For this reason, the Sheriff’s Office and Orange County Parks and Recreation have partnered together to offer a concealed carry class at a minimum cost to Orange County Citizens and to those who work in Orange County. The classes are currently being held every other month unless there is not enough interest to fill the class. The training consists of education in the classroom to include safety, laws, shooting fundamentals, storage, maintenance, and legal considerations. Students will also have to show safe weapon handling on the range. Instructors are DCJS Certified Firearms Instructors. For more information about Concealed Carry, please visit the Sheriff's Office page. Class space is limited. All participants must register at least 2 weeks prior to the class date, no exceptions. This class is limited to Orange County residents and those who work in Orange County. Please Note: Completion of training course DOES NOT grant concealed carry permit. Participant must still apply for the permit through clerk of the circuit court of the county or city in which he or she resides. Completion of this class fulfills the handgun competence requirement for the application. A background check will be required for participation. Registration documents are available in the OCPR office or for printout below. It is recommended that interested applicants complete the waiver at the OCPR office because the waiver must be notarized and we have several notaries in the office. As stated above, all documents must be turned in in advance.  The registration fee is $30.
