Fairy Tale Paint Night

 

Dedicated to providing quality fine arts instruction to the community since 1993, BC’s Fine Arts Community School (FACS) is a community service outreach program that enables local families and students of all ages and interests, including home-schoolers, to explore and study the arts with the guidance of mentors and professionals who have appropriate training and experience.

 

More than 20 classes, workshops and lessons are available on the FACS schedule this spring, including the final set of classes starting soon in “LadySafe Self Defense,” “Art Therapy,” “Fairy Tale Paint Night,” and “Sunset Silhouette Paint Night,” all detailed below.
