Henry Ford said, “Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young.” Keep old age at bay by learning a new skill this summer…in just one day! Local classes are available for a wide variety of crafty projects. Scroll down to see a few of our faves. Bonus: Most (maybe all) of these classes are held indoors, out of the July heat.

GET ARTISTIC

Even if you’ve never held a paintbrush, these classes can help you create…maybe not a masterpiece, but happy memories of the fun you had. It’s even more fun if you bring friends or family along so you can all get artistic together.  Check out Wine & Design in Franklin or Paint + Canvas in Nashville for more info.
