Make Time for Art

These days, many of us spend more time at the computer than usual and feel a greater desire to carve out time for a creative pursuit. Each week, instructor Jennifer Wilkin Penick will lead you in mixed media projects that take advantage of materials that you probably already have at home, and that will give you some healthy, de-stressing, creative time spent with congenial, art-loving people. The class will be taught via Zoom, but you will spend most of your time looking at your artistic creations. Good for all skill levels and for anyone wanting a creative jumpstart!




Fridays, 4:00-5:30pm. January 22 – February 19, 2021.
