Carbon County Art League meets Nov. 14
Members of the Carbon County Art League will meet from 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday at The Seventh Moon Wellness Spa, 701 Bridge St., Lehighton.
A painting workshop will be conducted by Wayne Yurchak, who will demonstrate techniques on painting snow for a winter scene.
Those planning to attend should arrive by 6 p.m., and should also RSVP so organizers know how many canvases to prepare. The league will provide the canvas, paint and all necessary tools.
Cost is $20 for members, $25 for nonmembers. The meeting is free for those who want to watch the demonstration.
Members are reminded to bring their finished gourd ornaments so the Seventh Moon can display the gourds and have them available for purchase leading up to Christmas.
