“Time for Me”  A Women’s Creative Circle

Facilitator: MJ McCurdy

$25 includes all materials and a finished piece to take home!

This group will meet quarterly instead of monthly. Please watch this space for meeting dates. Thank you!

As women, we all seem to make time for everyone else in our lives– but when is OUR time? Time For Me is a way to set aside time for ourselves, to meet new friends and express our inner creativity. At each class we will explore various creative forms, learning a different technique each time, then use that technique to express our inner selves. You do not have to be artistically gifted to join us!

This is an on-going class that usually meets the last Thursday of the month from 6:30-8:30pm, with exceptions due to holidays*. You are free to attend one class, two classes, or every class if you would like. Each class you attend is $25 and includes all materials needed for the evening. Bring beverages for yourself and snacks for others,           if you would like to share.

Women from 13 to 100 are welcome! Private group and party classes available too–  please email us for information.
