Need a fun idea for a date, girlfriend night out or other group setting? How about a painting class? Breathe easy. This class requires no talent!

What a relief to someone like me who still loves to color inside the lines of coloring books! As most people prefer something more advanced to draw than a coloring book, but may be just a tad less talented than Picasso, the Auer Center for Arts and Culture comes to the rescue. A special painting class will be offered for public groups on Saturday, July 28, 7–10 p.m. with instructor Amy Clark. Pictures on the canvases will be drawn out ahead of time. Artlink provides the supplies. Artists (and wannabes) just show up and paint! Cost: $40 Artlink Members, $45 General Public. This activity is designed for people ages 21+.  A beverage and light appetizers are included in the price. Additional drinks will be available for a small donation. ** A beginner’s drawing class is also available on Sunday, July 29, 1 – 4 p.m. This is for ages 18 years through adult. Artlink will provide paper. Participants need to bring pencils and other drawing supplies. A supply list will be mailed/emailed upon registration. Instructor:  Marilyn Bock-Tobolski; Cost: $30 Artlink Members, $35 General Public Note: Workshops and classes require a minimum number of registered participants. Minimum number varies with the class. If a minimum number has not been reached, paid participants will be refunded. So round up a gaggle of friends and sign up for one or both classes! Parking: Free parking is available at the Auer Center from Lafayette or Main Streets. Metered parking is available on Barr Street until 5pm when parking at all city meters is free.
