ArtWRKD unveils new workshops, master classes


With a commitment to fostering creativity and enhancing artistic skills, ArtWRKD in Newtown is introducing a series of workshops that cater to both beginners and seasoned artists.

Artist Rebecca Kelly will offer the “Meditative Heart Workshop” from 1-4 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 24, taking participants on a healing journey of creation. Kelly is a book arts and mixed media artist.
