“We are now booking SMARTIES sessions for October, November and December,” said Judith Jurica, executive director of Gallery Vertigo in downtown Vernon.

Both new instructors and returning instructors are welcome to apply to teach workshops at this drop-in family art program which runs Sundays from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m., with volunteer assistants on hand for each session.
