Just back from a long holiday break I was reading the latest Arts Center newsletter and see that there is no lack of “artsy” offerings for the opening of 2016. If you have resolved to take in more creative pursuits with the new year then The Arts Center has you covered.

In the upcoming months there are numerous classes, concerts, performances & parties to help lighten the winter and provide enticement to get out of hibernation mode (an easy trap during the cold days). These arts activities are always better when shared with friends and according to the latest medical news — socializing with friends and doing creative activity is important to a long and healthy life, on par with exercise! I can’t argue with that rational for enjoying arts activities. Here are just a few highlights but check the website and Facebook for more on classes and additional concerts.
