The return of Canvas & Cocktails was so well received in October, that the class filled up immediately. So, SaddleBrooke Ranch (SBR) resident Janice Mihora will once again be bringing her talent to the SBR Art Room on Wednesday, Dec. 6, from 5 to 7:30 p.m. The holiday-themed painting will be a new version of the red truck with a pine tree. If you have last year’s painting, this will be a nice companion piece to it.

The pricing for this class is slightly different from the October event. SBR Art Club members will pay $45 for the class. If you are not a member of the SBR Art Club, the class fee is $50. For only $5 more, nonmembers can enjoy this fun event. As an end-of-the-year celebration, we want nonmembers to be able to participate.

As with previous such events, come with your adult beverage of choice. You can even bring snacks if you like. Look forward to an evening of laughter and friendship as you paint the holiday-themed red truck painting as shown. No previous experience is necessary. Janice will paint with you step-by-step to create your masterpiece.
