So many special people have discovered an inner quality they never nurtured before by taking a chance and taking a class. We have adults who have reached lifelong goals such as showing their work in an art exhibit, dancing in front of an audience, singing out loud in public, or just doing something for the pure enjoyment of it. We specialize in teaching people who are not yet accomplished artists, dancers, potters, jewelers and musicians, which covers just about all of us, doesn’t it? So, what are you waiting for? Call us today and join in the fun! Sinda Wood is program assistant for the Glenwood Springs Center for the Arts. Call the center at 945-2414 for applications, tickets or information.
