Art Classes / Painting
Whether you’re an avid painter or a novice looking to learn, you’ll be able embrace the surroundings and further your skills at Ashbrook Apartments. Residents meet weekly in a secluded area, surrounded by landscapes, portraits, and other works of art painted by residents. Outside class time, you can make use of the space any time you wish to continue painting.
