Get into your creative groove – join art classes

Janet Tucker

The SaddleBrooke Fine Arts Guild is here to help you tap into your creative talents! We have so many wonderful classes that are available to anyone in SaddleBrooke—in fact, you don’t even have to live in SaddleBrooke to take our classes. Most classes are open to any skill level, although when intermediate or advanced skill is required, it is clearly stated in the class description on our website:

The sooner you join a class, the sooner you may be able to join our next Fine Arts Show October 30 and 31, 2015. Who knows what our classes might inspire you to create!
