Paint-a-Palooza (Acrylics)

Heyde Center for the Arts, 3 South High Street, Chippewa Falls, WI 54729

Look out Chippewa Falls because we are unleashing more new artists into the Chippewa Valley!

The June 25 and July 16 kick off of our Paint-A-Palooza class was a HUGE success with people asking for more classes in July and August. The Heyde Center is partnering with the Valley Art Association to offer different types of classes for an art experience you will not forget. Come spend two hours trying your hand at acrylic or watercolor painting - or perhaps you'd like to try pastels or colored pencils. At the end of the night, you will have had a fun evening and you will go home with your own work of art!

The Heyde Center strives to provide opportunities for community members to discover their creative side by trying different types of arts classes in a fun, non-threatening atmosphere. We are all creative in our own way and our art is equally valuable, regardless of whether we have a song in the "top ten music chart" or have our artwork hanging in a museum.

Register early as class sizes are limited to 12 people! Payment must be made in advance and is not refundable; however, if someone is unable to attend the class he/she signed up for, he/she can choose a class on another date.

"Second WInd" Pursuing a Purpose-Driven Retirement

Peace Lutheran Church
Christian:
Second Wind seeks to reenergize members of the Baby Boom generation who are concluding long work careers, starting new careers or work ventures, or have retired. We believe that God has invested too much in you in terms of abilities and experiences for you to “coast” to the finish line. Who is to say that you can’t write the most important part of your life’s legacy in the next season of your life! Our kickoff event on April 5, 2014 will be both inspirational and informational … addressing practical issues which Boomers are facing (such as caring for elderly parents) and energizing all of us to discover the ways that we can make our greatest personal contribution to our families, communities, and world.
