INFORMAL COLORING GROUP
This is a very informal group (no instructor) that meets on Thursdays from 1 - 3 pm at Calendar House, just to get together to socialize, relax and have fun while coloring! Even if you have never colored before, or if it's been awhile, join us! You can come and go as you please, no fee, no requirement to stay for the entire session. You supply your own coloring materials and books - you can find a great, inexpensive selection at the Dollar Store, Wal-Mart, Michaels and even Staples! You don't need much to start. Colored pencils, crayola crayons or sharpies - you chose. If you already have supplies you're all set. Any questions? Call Joe LaPorte 860.628.2227. Hope to see you!
