WC Parks and Rec are at it again (part two)

Yesterday we began discussing the new classes available through the Williamson County Parks and Recreation Department. Art appears to be the theme for fall and what a perfect time for it!


Adventurous Artists is a class for youth 7-12 who wish to explore colors. Students will become color explorers with an emphasis on discovering how prisms, color wheels, kaleidoscopes and swirls can inspire a rainbow of artworks. The class promises to be fun, educational and messy. The class meets on Wednesday’s, September 5-26 except for the 19th, from 1-2:30 P.M. at the Franklin Recreation Complex, 1120 Hillsboro Rd. The three-week course is only $25, plus a $5 supply fee paid to the instructor.

Call (615) 790-5719, ext. 10 to register.

Looking for something fancier, how about French Style Antique painting? You will learn all about this currently popular technique. Unique paints with chalk content will be used to give new life and classic French color to old furniture, mirrors, etc. This formula can be used without stripping or sanding in most cases. The hands-on workshop is taught by Mary Grace Birkhead and meets on Thursdays, September 6-27 from 12:30 P.M. to 2:30 P.M. at the recreation complex. The entire 4-week course is only $72 with a $10 supply fee paid to the instructor separately. Contact her for a supply list, marygraceb@comcast.net.

Call (615) 790-5719, ext. 10 to register.

Check back Friday for more classes waiting for you in September.
