The art class at the Drop In Centre on Wednesday night brought out quite a few aspiring artists, actually it was a lot of fun and we all learned new techniques and methods from our new resident, Bobbi. Bobbi is a talented commissioned artist who has completed numerous projects in Calgary. She specializes in both oil and water painting but will gladly assist those who choose to work with acrylics. Bobbie will not be teaching a formal class but will be present to assist with techniques and questions. All you need to bring is your paints, brushes and imagination. From now on art classes will be held at the Delia school on Wednesdays from 4 p.m. until 8 p.m. Everyone is welcome, so come join us for some fun, conversation, and discover your hidden talent!
