Thank you, Beth, for promoting the classes at Apothecary Artists. We are very excited by the tremendous enthusiasm and support we have received from the community for our new gallery and studio space.

Regarding the collage class, it is nearly full! I have one spot available. We can’t wait to see you all for our upcoming programs.
Catherine
