Oil Painting $100 a month (4 sessions)
Tuesday 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm
Tuesday  6:00 - 8:00

I have thoroughly enjoyed my oil painting class at the YWCA. Peggy Barnes is terrific as our instructor and quite the encourager for a beginner like me. I would recommend this class not only for the beginner but also for the more experienced painter who wants to improve skills.
