Day:  Thursdays
Time: 1:30-4:30 pm
Where: Diamond Clubhouse
Season: 1/6/22 to 5/12/22
 
There is a small group of "artists" in Silver Lakes who have enjoyed painting together and giving each other help, praise, and encouragement over the last few seasons.  Nobody has shown up for art lessons per se - we all bring our own supplies and paint, talk and laugh together. We have met during season near the kitchen where the Ping Pong tables are stored.  We pull long tables out from the closet, put down plastic tablecloths, and paint one or two of us per table.
 
Note.  This activity will not occur on those Thursdays that have a scheduled board meeting.
