More from Schroon Lake Chamber President, Donna M. Mellan.

“Annie Gregson steps back up to the teaching table to take you on a painting adventure made for anyone who can hold a paintbrush. She made a career of being a fun instigator disguised as an art teacher, teaching K-12 art at Schroon Lake Central for 20 years. And she's taught older folks and run art workshops of all sorts. (You might even say she’s made a life long study of how to sidestep the anxiety related to starting an art piece.) So wanna dabble, play, sip and laugh? And walk away with a grand experience under your belt and a painting to prove it? Step in, step up and relax. It’s gonna be a fun ride. Tickets can be purchased in advance at the Schroon Lake Area Chamber of Commerce and recommended.  Space is limited.” Contact the Chamber at 532-7675 for more information
