Location pro tips
Our location is in Haggard Park, a jewel in downtown Plano. There are often ducks and herons in the pond, a fountain, a gazebo, DART Light Rail, artwork and tons of opportunities for Street Photography within a couple of minutes’ walk from the Art Centre. Plan on staying after class for exploration and lunch/drinks in one of the great downtown restaurants (Vickery Park is my favorite).
Class size is limited. Reserve now to guarantee a spot. At least 3 participants are required in order for the class to be held.
