Art Night – Fundraiser

Join us for an fun evening of Art, Friends and Fundraising on January 21st starting at 6:30 at Designs by Wine!

EVERYONE can do this…no experience in art is required. The instructor gives detailed, step by step instructions and is available to answer any questions you may have. It’s a BLAST!

Tasty New Mexico wines will be available, as well as plenty of non-alcoholic beverages.

Cost is only $35 a person and proceeds will go towards our 2015 backpack project for New Mexico kids.

This activity is great for a group of friends, co-workers, families and date night. Basically, it’s for anyone that wants to have a great time with fun people!

Register early, as space is limited, and these classes often sell out.
