Start the New Year with a new adventure: learning to paint! Beginners (and old hands that might be rusty) are welcome to join the Wednesday morning class under the guidance of Jane Bollman. Even though you “can’t draw a straight line with a ruler”, you will be surprised that you can learn to paint! You can give the class a try for a few weeks to see if you enjoy it. We meet between 9am and noon, and the cost is $5 per hour. Think you might be interested? Call 410-770-8611 for more information.
