TAKE A CLASS WITH US!

We host classes for pottery, painting, drawing, and more! Our schedule is always changing, so be sure to check back often.

And just as a note, classes are where your membership really kicks in. If you plan to take a lot of classes (or even just a few), the discounts members get on classes more than pays for your membership. Just our little way of saying thank you and encouraging you to explore your love for art!

Whimsical Signs and Lettering

All skill levels are welcome to join local sign designer, Pam Camp, as she leads the class through the steps of creating stylish door hangers. You will learn lettering techniques and leave the class with a finished piece that's ready for hanging.

 

The November class will feature your choice of three designs: the Christmas jeep, Fall truck, or pumpkin (see below). When you sign up, you must list your design choice in the notes section. The deadline for signing up is a week and a half before the class date to allow time for the teacher to buy the sign supplies.

 

Bring your own wine and snacks, if you want to have a fun night out with friends!
