Class style instruction will be provided for each Arts session. Space is limited to 4 per time-slot.

NEW THIS SEASON: Paint Night! We will show the group how to paint a common scene following step by step instruction. This will be as much fun and social as it is creative. We’ll have 2 different themes so sign up for one or both. This ought to be fun!! Space is limited to 10 painters.
