Arts Escape is now accepting registrations for a one-session class, Turning Words into Art and Art into Words, held in March at their location in Southbury.
On Friday, March 10 from 10:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., enjoy a stress-free fun session of writing and painting! Ekphrastic writing--a piece of writing penned in response to a piece of art--and impressionist painting will be explored and intertwined to inspire and challenge your creative self.
You’ll be led via guided prompts and demonstrations courtesy of instructors Betsy Rogers-Knox and Nancy McMillan. All levels are welcome and no experience is required. Learn more and sign-up here
