The Art For Fun classes at the San Juan Islands Museum of Art in Friday Harbor have begun for the summer. Specially designed for those who think they can’t paint or just want to have fun, talented instructor Kristen Abramson will lead the classes with attention to every student.
Art for Fun is a two-hour, fun-filled art party set in a relaxed, interactive atmosphere. It is a great way to celebrate a birthday, share a date night, create team building or just enjoy a night out on your own. Join old friends or new friends and follow step-by-step instructions. Everyone paints the same picture, yet takes home his or her own unique creation. The fee is $35 per class.
