Art experimentation - join us next week for a class!

One of the most popular events we host regularly here at Waterstone doesn't involve an impressive musician, laughter-inducing comic or a cooking demonstration from a local chef, even though we've had all those events and more and have enjoyed them quite a bit! No, it's our simple, relaxing art class that seems to have drawn quite a bit of interest. It's no wonder - anyone who has taken a moment to slow down, pull out some painting or drawing materials, and create something beautiful knows just how engaging and rewarding art can be.
