Arts & Crafts



On the first Monday of every month, Dana Popp holds a specialized class focusing solely on painting on fabric. Decorate a tote bag or an apron or even a napkin. This is a drop-in class, and the paint and brushes are provided. You will need to bring the item you wish to beautify.


Tom Aparicio will show you how to design and create beautiful necklaces, earrings, bracelets, and anklets. No sign-up is necessary, and the materials for your first project are provided by the center.


The focus of this class is to socialize with other artists, be inspired by the creations and imaginations of other artists, and to learn from other artists. Whether you've never picked up a brush before, or have been painting for years, you are most welcome to drop in. This is a participant-led class.

Our own instructor, Dana Popp,  will introduce you to a variety of woodcarving techniques and even wood-burning skills. Tools are provided for beginners, and the center provides the material for your first project.


Beaded banners are beautiful artistic pictures created with colored beads. Please stop by the Orange Room any day to view finished beaded banners and
see if this might be something you would like to try.  Class participants will be happy to help you get started, and the center provides the material for your first project. This is a drop-in, participant-led class.


Nancy Sliker is now teaching basic and intermediate levels of watercolor painting. Instructions include how to mount and stretch your paper, how to mix colors, and how to visualize your picture. Please stop by any Thursday morning to discuss supplies with Nancy. 


This class is participant-led. Each week a different media or style of art is explored. One week you may work with shaving cream; the next week you might be drawing cartoon animals. Come join this group for creative experimenting and lots of fun and laughter.


This informal weekly workshop is for any senior who wants to start a project or has already started but needs some motivation to finish. The Center provides the embellishments for scrap-booking. You bring your photos and album. But hey! this class isn't limited to scrap-booking. Bring whatever you're working on, spread out, and enjoy some company while you're working.
