“Time for Me: A Women’s Creative Circle”

Meeting the last Thursday of each month, 7-9pmNO CLASSES IN JUNE, JULY OR AUGUST. Facilitator and Leader: MJ McCurdy

$20 includes all materials!

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, with exceptions listed below due to holidays. You are free to attend one class, two classes, or every class if you would like. Each class you attend is $20 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 classes available too– email us for information.

We meet the last Thursday of every month except for June, July and August. Contact the Gallery if you have questions and to confirm the dates.

Please register for classes in advance so we have enough supplies.
