At Yellow Door Art Studios, we are excited to partner with the Garvey Senior Center in Leonardtown to offer workshops for senior artists that enrich their lives and nourish their hearts. Our classes are 2 hours long and provide a bit of art history mixed with a hands-on painting experience. We hope that people enjoy themselves, socialize, and learn something about art. Classes at the Garvey Senior Center are held twice a month, and accommodate 20 participants, producing a painting to take home. Below is the schedule of classes being offered in the Fall of 2017. To register please contact the Garvey Senior Center at (301) 475-4200. To learn more about the Garvey Senior Center and all of its services visit http://www.stmarysmd.com/aging/garvey.asp.
