If your New Year’s resolution is to rediscover your artistic side, you’re in luck. Starting in 2005, the Waterford Cultural Council will be offering a series of art and creative writing classes.

An eight-week watercolor class begins Jan. 11, meeting 7-9 p.m. every Tuesday and taught by art instructor Dawn Eggenberger. After completion of the course, student work will be showcased in an exhibit at the Waterford Cultural Council Gallery. Cost is $80.

Lifestories, an eight-week memoir writing class, begins Jan. 12, meeting 7-9 p.m. every Wednesday. The class is taught by journalist and author Carolyn Walker, and focuses on the creative nonfiction writing of the memoir genre. Cost is $100.

A ten-week singing class for youths from 7 to 17 will begin Jan. 14, meeting 6-7 p.m. every Thursday, taught by vocal coach TaChuna Banks. The course will be capped with a performance recital. Cost is $100.

All classes are held at the Cultural Council’s offices, 5869 Andersonville Rd., Waterford. To register for any class, call 248-623-9389.


Bored to tears during this slow holiday week? Do something culturally constructive and venture over to another country for some great art. The Art Gallery of Windsor is open this week from noon to 5 p.m., including New Year’s Eve. The gallery features a large collection of historical and contemporary works, and — for you true Christmas procrastinators — the Uncommon Gallery Gift Shop. Admission is $2; closed on New Year’s Day; 401 Riverside Dr., Windsor; 519-977-0013.
