Painting on Wednesdays

Every Wednesday, 12:30 to 3:30 p.m., artists gather for a painting workshop taught by Dana Van Horn at The Baum School of Art, Allentown.

And some of the artists have been coming for a quite some time.

Cindy Wilson, for example, jokes she’s been a student of Van Horn’s for 102 years.

“I’ve learned so much from him,” Wilson says. “As soon as my kids went to school, I started art lessons.”
