Line Dance

Line Dancing has evolved over the years to include many genres of music and many rhythms. There is something for everyone. No partner is required as everyone dances in a line and repeats a sequence of steps.

It is recommended that you bring a bottle of water and wear comfortable, stretchable clothing. Shoes should not have too much grip to allow for dancing movements.

Painting – Mixed Media

The instructor will be giving an introduction to oils and will use a step by step approach to painting a composition. This will give everyone a chance to take home a complete painting. Depending on the level of the group, we will determine what to paint and how fast. 

For those who don’t want to use oils, this can be done in acrylics. A retarder to slow drying can also be used to imitate the properties of oils. 

A canvas of 16 X 20 or 18 X 24 will be used for our first painting.
