Calling All Artists

Whether you work in oil, acrylics, or watercolors, join us! All levels of painting abilities are welcome to our open studio class which begins October 30th.Through sharing knowledge, techniques, and methods amongst a group of peers, you gain ideas and tricks of the trade to develop as an artist. Through critiquing, we will learn to see through the eyes of another person. This will help us to honestly evaluate our own work and expand our own vision, understanding, skill and experience. This six week class meets from 6:00-8:00 pm at Gardiner High School. Cost is $59.00. Register at or call 582-3774 for more information.

Exploring Italy

Italy is absolutely fabulous! Join three recent travelers and learn why this is a country that visitors return to again and again. We'll explore Florence, Rome, and the hill towns of Tuscany through slides and stories. Learn about the culture (italians have an extended lunch break), the history (those Romans sure knew how to build things), the food (can you say ribollita) and discover why there's a photograph around every corner. We'll provide tips and travel resources and some italian dessert! Don't miss the fun. Gardiner High School, Room 127 Wednesday 10/29/2014 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM
