Creative and Crafty: Christmas Canvas

Due to the overwhelming interest in our original Christmas Canvas classes, we're offering a third Creative and Crafty project on today at 2:00 p.m. in the J. Henry Kegley Meeting Room.

During our Christmas Canvas event, registered participants will have the opportunity to create a fun, holiday-themed canvas.  We'll have two different ideas from which to choose, and participants will have the chance to give it their own personal flair.

Supplies will be provided for a nominal fee of $5, but participants are welcome to bring their own canvas and painting supplies to waive this free.  Registration is currently full for our event, but if you would like to learn more about our upcoming events, visit our Facebook page at or feel free to contact us at 276-645-8780.
