For years, our customers have been telling us that painting is therapeutic. We have decided to build upon this theme and have created an inspiring three—session program for women looking for support, counseling, comfort and relaxation.

The focus of this series is peace—what it means to you and how to achieve it. Paint pottery and talk in a group setting led by an accomplished therapist and artist. Treat yourself to three Monday mornings filled with creativity and peace, and the exchange of thoughts and ideas with like-minded women. Leave feeling refreshed and ready to tackle the rest of your week!

Session dates are Monday, March 9, 16 and 23, from 10-11:30 am.

We will be painting a hamsa, a yin yang bowl, and a peace word plaque. Pieces will be ready for pickup a week after painting. Cost of the 3 week program is $175. Pre—register with a 50% deposit by March 3—by phone (860-233-3322), email (stephanie@theclaypen.com), or in person at 997 Farmington Ave., West Hartford.
