Sit & Paint with Christine

Christine Nola, a local artist from Cheboygan, teaches paint classes around northern Michigan. She will lead us step-by-step to create the wintery lamppost painting, which reflects her love of nature.

This event is held at the Petoskey Friendship Center on Tuesday, January 24 from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. and is open to all seniors, regardless of painting experience. The cost is $15.00 per person, to be paid at the event. All materials will be provided and you will depart with a finished painting!

Creative Card Making

Chris is bringing this popular card-stamping event back to Friendship Centers. Two options are available to take this Creative Card-Making Class. Choose from Tuesday, March 7 at the Huber Senior Center in Brutus or Thursday, March 9 at the Petoskey Friendship Center. Times are from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. for either location.

The same cards will be created at both locations.

All supplies are provided.

No experience is necessary.

Cost: $10 payable at the event, to make five everyday occasions cards.

Chris will provide all the support and inspiration needed to craft these beautiful cards. There are plenty of options for individual creativity, and these handmade cards will be cherished by the recipients. Come and enjoy creating together!
