TUESDAY, WEDNESDAY AND FRIDAY PAINTERS
Some members of DeCosmos may be interested in joining one of the groups of enthusiastic artists that meet on Tuesday and Friday afternoons.
The artists, who work on their own projects, benefit from the camaraderie and suggestions of other attendees.
The groups meet at the McMillan Arts Centre, 133 McMillan Street in Parksville and participants share the cost of the room rental. The number of participants is subject to the availability of space.
