Fall is the perfect time to start a creative writing habit with Carolyn Walker, in a class that meets weekly for 4 weeks, from Sept 8-29.  In Writing the Personal Essay, participants will learn how to draft ideas; deal with characters, friends, relatives, and readers; how to write dialogue; how to evoke imagery and setting, the importance of word choice; and how to write taking advantage of reflection and emotion, including the writing of emotionally difficult material.


The Oliver Art Center exhibits are open to the public Mon.-Fri. 10 a.m.-4:30 p.m., Sat. 10 a.m.-4 p.m., and Sun. 12 p.m. -4 p.m.  Please visitwww.oliverartcenterfrankfort.org to register for classes online or contact Mercedes or Kirsten at 231-352-4151 for more information.

Parking at Oliver Art Center is limited. Overflow parking can be found along the east side of Second Street, which leads to Oliver Art Center, as well as on Main Street. Parking is prohibited in the adjacent lots of Harbor Lights, The United States Coast Guard Station, and at other condominiums.
