“Learning to be creative is a process that’s positive across a wide range of human activity. Human beings are by nature create,” said [Pastor Bob] Marrone. “If we try to take that out of people, we lose out.” — From “Act of Painting is Close to Prayer,” by Ashley Saari, Monadnock Ledger-Transcript, January 19, 2017
Paint Night classes offer people a chance to gather and create a painting. You don’t already have to consider yourself an artist to enjoy Paint Night: the creative process will allow you to learn more about yourself and to have some fun, as you paint, join in fellowship, and have a few refeshments.
Classes are led by pastor and artist Bob Marrone and are offered monthly, on the second Tuesday of the month — and on an additional day every other month. (See our church calendar for more information.) Children as well as adults are welcome, though children under 12 should be accompanied by an adult. You don’t have to be a member of Union Congregational to participate in Paint Night. The $10 fee covers the cost of materials, and registration is required. To register, contact the church office at 603-924-3272.
“So many people are told they can’t draw or paint, and there’s a real sadness to that. Everybody can do it. Everybody.” Bob Marrone, “Act of Painting Is Close to Prayer,” by Ashley Saari, Monadnock Ledger-Transcript, January 19, 2017.
