Painting Class

Sunday, August 14 is the day at 12:30pm we will start our paint class again. Pam said “I hope you are as excited as I am to get back in the ‘swing of things’. Many of you have shown interest in painting again. It’s been too long, and I appreciate every one of you that been loyal and have waited so patiently.  This month class will be on the 2nd Sunday but starting next month it will be the first Sunday again. We are painting the Gnome, so please sign up! I have it posted on my website. www.pamscolorpallet.com.  If you are shy with the website or have issues, send me an email and I will put you on the list. I hope to see you on the 14th.”
