Wednesday Open Art Studio

Our classroom studio is open to members who enjoy setting up an easel and doing their own thing. Our “Wednesday Group” is a group which likes to work together so they can share lunch and do their art work. Many say they get more done with friends than they would at home by themselves. You may come and visit or try your hand at something. They are always willing to help the beginner get started.

The group meets at NOON on Wednesdays.
