Cheers To Art

Twice a month, Thursdays at 6pm

Looking for a creative and fun activity? Look No further.

The lovely and talented, Jackie Gianico guides you through an acrylic painting created by you! Lots of great humor and guidance throughout the class 🙂

This is a great opportunity for friends, family, teammates, and co-workers to share an activity and be creative!
