Practice Makes Perfect


Today, Wednesday, Jan. 21, 2009, I ventured to Riordan Hall in Bella Vista to photograph a painting class. I am always amazed at the talent of painters and how talented many of the residents are in Bella Vista. Over the past eight years working for the Morning News in Northwest Arkansas I have met many of these artists but I know there are still many out there with their stories. If you know some of these people with interesting stories or hobbies, send me an email at

This painting class has been meeting since 1982 and one instructor, Melissa Bokker, drives from Cherokee Village every other week to teach the students. For more information on the class call Beverly Wescott at (479) 855-0095.


From woodcarvers to yoga, all types of activities and clubs meet at Riordan Hall in Bella Vista. Check out for more information.
