Acrylic Classes Sept 11th and 18th

Please join us for Mark Jackson's acrylic classes on September 11th and 18th at 7:00 at the Murfreesboro Art League's Gallery at the back of Canonsburg.  The gates will be open but please follow the following rules: Do not park on any sidewalk. Don’t park on the inner circle, so fire truck can get through. Don’t park past end of garden, so fire truck can get to the hydrant. Thanks!  

Non-members may participate free for the first class and the second class will cost $15.00.  If you are a non-member and have participated in our classes previously, the cost is $15.00.
