Dancing in Colours

Take time to put on your dreams on paper with pastels. With the help of music and special effects, you will be able to have a piece of art completed in about 3 hours within the Barclay Manor walls. Take time to discover perhaps hidden talents sleeping in you. Simple tools, ambiance, and music will motivate you to at least try.
