Wine-ing About Art

Friday, September 20, 2013 @ 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Please note, our talented artist-in-residence Chappy Valente is available for private and group lessons through the fall and winter. Chappy’s “Wine-ing About Art” classes were such a big hit this summer, we’re continuing them on Friday evenings this fall from 6-9 p.m . Bring your own bottle of wine and enjoy a landscape painting lesson, along with the lively company of other class participants. Normally $75, the discounted off-season fee is only $55, making it a delightful way to spend a cool fall evening. Please call All About Art at 910-368-5336 no later than 2 days before the class to preregister, as we need four students to make a class.
