Painting classes offered at Wassenberg

Back to our regularly scheduled programming!

Thanks to all who came out and supported the Wassenberg Art Center and Main Street Van Wert at Town Creek Live Saturday! We also wish to thank our hardworking staff and their families for their hard work and patience. Another thank you to our selfless volunteers who gave up limited supply of time and volunteered. We literally could not do this without you. The dinosaurs provided by Central Insurance, Van Wert Health and First Federal Van Wert were a huge hit as were the art projects, food trucks and bands Vanity Crash and Kaitlyn Schmit & the Move.
