GIVE YOUR creative energy an outlet this winter with one of 14 arts classes at the Hanover Area Arts Guild Gallery, 32 Carlisle St., Hanover, Pa. Children and adults can learn and enjoy art taught by local artists in media ranging from watercolor to pottery.

You can meet the instructing artists on Winter Demonstration Day, Jan. 13, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the gallery. It's an opportunity to view their work and discuss the planned courses.

Expenses range from $40 to $105 for courses that run approximately five weeks. Depending on the class, some materials may be available through the instructor. Registration runs through Jan. 13.

The gallery's Winter Invitational Watercolor Show also will be on exhibit.

For children, there's a Saturday afternoon art course for ages 8 to 15. Children 10 to 16 can sign up for beginning watercolor painting. And, for the first time, a children's pottery class is offered.

Susan Mancha, well-known watercolor artist from Manchester, will offer a series of watercolor and landscape painting courses.

Primitive and folk art painting, using acrylic paints on wood, will be taught by Jane West. Offered for the first time, this course requires no painting experience. It's planned for the home decorator and those interested in crafts.

Another new course offering is fine art pottery taught by Jack Handshaw, one of several potters working with the guild.

Basic drawing, pastel drawing, basic pen and ink drawing and oil painting are also available for adult students at every level.
