Art series in January

The Painted Turtle Studio and Kaleidoscope Wellness are hosting a four-part art class starting in January. Each Sunday, from 2 to 4 p.m., "Birthing through Art" will be open to anyone interested in connecting more deeply to the birthing process. The series will cost $80 (scholarships and sliding scale available). They will use art and reflection to explore our innate gift to give birth, to uncover our fears that inhibit the natural process, and strengthen our powers to create life. No artistic talent, or pregnancy, is necessary. Contact Gretchen Groenke for more information or to register at 509-830-4380.
