The Berkeley Arts Council has announced new art classes starting in January, 2016. These classes are taught by popular instructor Judith Becker. Classes are held in the Berkeley Art Works, 116 North Queen Street in Martinsburg.

The “Winter Special” workshop series offers four three-hour workshops for the price of two. The four workshops will be held Fridays in January from 1-4 p.m. They are “Skys and Clouds” on Jan. 8, “Water” on Jan. 15, “Trees and Backgrounds” on Jan. 22, and “Textures” on Jan. 29. Registration for all four workshops is $90, which is half of the normal tuition.
