Seniors enjoy these classes because not only are they experimenting with their talents, but also because it is a nice hobby that keeps them busy.
The art program at the Senior center is really exciting. The Art teacher, Mr. Nowak, teaches with instruction and demonstration. The class uses Acrylics paint. The benefits of this kind of paint are no fumes, it dries quick, and It is put on with brushes. The classes are held in the fall, on Wednesday and Fridays from 9-11:30. The art class will store your painting at the senior center while you work on it. You can work at your own pace, and when you finish your painting, it will be displayed for everyone to see and admire. Even if you have never painted before, you can still be proud of the wonderful painting you will do in the class. It is only ten dollars for paint and supplies. Come down, and be creative soon.
