Brush up

A painters palate. — Brittany Bowker

Seeking a community art huddle this winter? Island artist Elizabeth Whelan hosts a free evening of drawing and painting at the Chappy Community Center this Thursday, Jan. 11, from 6:30 to 9:30 pm. Bring your own art supplies. Each session Ms. Whelan will set up two different still life arrangements — one simple and one complex. This is not a class, and there are no critiques, but Ms. Whelan will give input to those who ask for it. Every other Thursday during the winter. For more information, call 508-560-0083.
