FRIDAY, JULY 30, 7:00 P.M. – 8:30 P.M.




We are excited to announce that our Adult Paint and Sip monthly classes have begun. The classes will be held at the library. Participants must be 21 or older and bring their own drinks. We do allow a parent or grandparent to bring someone 18-20 years old. However, the parent or grandparent is restricted from consuming alcohol.

Registration will open the first day of each month. Registration is required and participants MUST register at the library. One person may register for a group. The registration form will  have a slot to list the number of people in your group that will be attending. We are limiting the number of participants to 24. We will have a registration waiting list once the class size is met. Therefore, please let us know if one or more in your group are unable to make it to class. 

If you have any questions, please contact Terri Hicks, Program Coordinator or Laura McFarland, Library Director at 970-834-1259. 

We will continue to offer Adult Paint and Sip “Kits” to those who are unable to attend the class. Painting kits are provided for FREE and contain instructions, canvas, photo of picture to be painted, and carbon paper for tracing picture onto canvas. No previous painting experience needed. The painting project will be the same as the painting offered in class.

You may pick up kits and have a small group gathering. Many of our patrons are painting with family and friends. Just stop by the library and ask a librarian for the number of kits you need. If you have specific questions about the kits, please contact Terri or Laura. Each kit will be available at the library during the dates listed to the right. If you are not able to pick up your kit during the week specified, please contact Terri or Laura and they will make arrangements to have kits available for you.

The class size is limited to nine participants. Registration is required. Please contact the library and ask to speak to Terri or Laura (970-834-1259). If we receive enough interest, we will start a second class with a size limit of nine participants.

Examples of participants paintings after 16 weeks.
