Appalachian Center for Poets and Writers will be meeting for Workshop on the Third Tuesday (April – October) at The Arts Depot at 7:00 p.m. A small reflective group with constructive critique, delivered with audience insight and gentleness. We also meet at the Arts Depot for Open Mic/Spoken Word First Thursday of each month, 6- 7pm. (April – October). Poets and writers are encouraged to use the current gallery offerings, exhibits and themes as the inspiration. All are welcome to attend and read or listen.

WEDNESDAY MORNING PAINTERS GROUP   Each Wednesday at 10 am the “Wednesday Morning Painters” gather at the Arts Depot for a few delightful hours of painting and artistic interaction.   All persons interested in painting in an informal, relaxed atmosphere are encouraged to attend.  All skill levels are represented from beginners to the more experienced.  This affords the opportunity for all to be involved in a support group that is totally non-threatening.  All art medias are represented and people are encouraged to “do their own thing” and stay and paint for only a short time or as long as they want.  There is no charge to attend, but after participating in a few sessions, attendees are expected to become members of the Depot Artists Association. Modest voluntary donations are also accepted at each session to help offset the cost of utilities and other operating expenses.  There is an annual Exhibit each year.
