Thursdays  5 to 7


Learn something new,… hone a skill,… challenge your creative problem solving. 

Come join a fun group of people who love to explore art materials.  Come increase your understanding and appreciation of making art, and art as recreation and relaxation.   Drop in to see what’s happening; but once you come, we know you will be back!   You can even bring another activity, like knitting, to do while interacting with the group.  When possible, tools will be provided and shared, depending on the activity and the number of participants.

Call ahead! 

 Participating in creative activities has been shown to improve our cognitive skills and create a confident and optimistic attitude.

Computer Users’ Workshop  – Are you interested?  When shall we meet?

Let’s explore how to use your technology!  Come help us develop this group which will meet at the Paige … participants will choose when to meet and what the topics will be.  If you have a laptop or iPad, bring it.

Sharing with others in groups reduces anxiety, improves self-esteem, and helps members’ sense of overall well-being.  Where else can you accomplish that, enjoy the company of some very interesting people, and learn something new?
