IN-PERSON ART WORKSHOPS

A variety of Art Workshops are routinely offered at the Senior Center and at satellite locations. Workshops usually meet once a week, and range from one to eight weeks in length and are have specific start and end dates. These are more structured lessons, geared towards specific techniques. Some are repeated throughout the year and others are offered only once or twice, as we gage interest in a new topic or outreach location. Art Workshops require preregistration and prepayment at least one week before start date.
