Canvas Paint Nights at Local Libraries

Canvas Paint Nights are sweeping through a number of Whitman County Library locations. The ever so popular classes fill quickly and often have a waiting list so registration is required. Canvas Paint Nights allow attendees of any skill level to recreate beautiful paintings by following guided step-by step videos from the artist who created the original painting.

The St. John Library is hosting its very first Paint Night on Wednesday, January 30 and Thursday, January 31 at 6:30 p.m. Two local artists will lead the classes and assist as needed.  Cost is $8 for each class, and adults and teens are invited.
