Awakening Your Inner Artist

A new art program offers sampling of different art classes

I love being a part of this active adult community. I’ve watched the many ways you stay engaged and socialize with many friends. As the new Director of Adult Life, I want to provide you with opportunities to try something new, revive an old passion and meet new friends. So that’s why I’ve developed a new art program called Art for Life.

Art for Life will kick off by offering a sampling of different art classes. Each class will meet only once or twice to start. This will allow you to try a new craft or method, leave with a finished product and then decide if it’s for you.

This is your time. Register for a class with Art for Life, and maybe you’ll have fun Awakening Your Inner Artist.
