The Maplewood Department of Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs is pleased to again offer all 60+ residents, especially those with no previous art training, the opportunity to participate in this stimulating, quality art class.
This free, 10-week course, “Fundamentals of Painting,” is taught by a professional teaching artist and will take place in the new Maplewood Senior Center, 106 Burnett St. The program will also include a trip to the Newark Museum and 1978 Arts Gallery in Maplewood.
Classes are for 2 hours and will be held on Thursdays, 11am -1pm, beginning March 30. As part of the program we also offer our unique “Open Studio,” which allows students to work independently and get more personalized attention on Fridays, 12p – 2p.
Students interested in participating in the program should contact: Michelle Wesley at [email protected] or 973.762.0750. They can also register by visiting DeHart Community Center (120 Burnett Ave, Maplewood) or Town Hall (574 Valley Street, Maplewood).
