You will receive the support and encouragement of the art center staff and fellow artists.

1 to 3 pm for anyone 16 up. Cost is just $10.00 to $15.00 per class (depending upon project), all art supplies included. Of course you are free to bring your own!


This is a drop-in class for beginning adult artists who wish to follow along or work on their own personal project. No preregistration is required; however if you would like to participate in our planned art lesson, let us know in advance if possible so we will can prepare your supplies and materials for you.
