Reserve your spot in the class at West Regional Library today!

Diamond painting is a fantastic activity to help adults let go of stress and anxiety while building artistic confidence!

Join us in the meeting room to learn how it's done.

This program is designed for adults but teens and older children are welcome if accompanied by an adult. We will provide everything needed for your creation, but registration is recommended, as supplies are limited. If class does not fill with pre-registered participants, the remaining spaces will be first come, first served.

Registration is recommend to reserve your spot, please email Ms. Stewart at jstewart@mplonline.org or give her a call at (251) 340-8561.
