Future Chinese Painting Classes cancelled

posted Dec 6, 2014, 12:35 PM by Executive Director

This is a photo of most of the students in the Chinese Painting Class with Yolanda Yang.  

The students had great fun, and learned a lot.  

We were planning to have two more classes starting in February, an Advanced Class and another Beginners Class.  However, Yolanda has had to move away from Trail, and won't be able to teach the classes.  We are very sorry that it didn't work out for the classes, but we're also very glad that we had the opportunity to get to know Yolanda a bit, and benefit from her knowledge while she was in Trail.  

Thank you, Yolanda!
