CALERA – Calera residents, aged 55 and higher, will have multiple events to look forward to this month. The first of these opportunities will be the ability for local seniors and art enthusiasts to take part in a painting class on Monday, Nov. 6.

The class, hosted at the Calera Senior Center at 15863 Highway 25, will begin at 10 a.m. and run for roughly an hour.

“Whether you’re a seasoned painter or a complete beginner, this class is perfect for all skill levels,” read an official release from the Calera Senior Center. “You’ll receive expert guidance from a talented artist who will lead you through the process of creating your very own masterpiece.”

The cost of entry for the event is $15 per person, which includes the cost of the canvas that will be provided to class participants at the start of the event.
