Starting September 2016, Moynihan is offering classes on Tuesdays from 2:00 pm- 4:30 pm or 6:00 pm- 8:30 pm. These classes will vary in subject matter, discipline, technique and design and will offer not only a memorable experience, but involved instruction, historical and cultural connections, community, inspiration and a finished piece of art to take home. Seating is limited so don't miss out!
The last Tuesday of each month, we will be hosting a special Candle-ology craft along with our More-than-ART-Class, featuring pre-selected products and fragrances that fit with our monthly theme and are hand crafted by our Moynihan Candle-ologists. The price of these classes are slightly higher to reflect the cost of the bonus Candle-ology product.
Sign up for any of our up-coming classes by visiting us in the store or calling the gallery at (616) 394-0093.
