New Site feature - View by Painting

We have added a great new feature to the Sips n Strokes website. We have been adding several locations and it has been making it harder to see the locations that you want and the images that you want to come to paint. So we have added a feature that lest you see all the paintings from today going forward in one view. You can then click on the image and it will show you the locations and times that painting is being taught. Then you can click on the location you want and it will take you directly to the registration for that class. Check it out here https://www.sipsnstrokes.com/ViewByPainting.aspx It is also located off the "Calendar" menu.
