WOONSOCKET, R.I.: Back by popular demand, Paint Nights with Instructor Jillian Cinquantini returns on Wednesday, October 9, 2019 as a guided art class the Woonsocket Parks and Recreation will hold for the public at its 1117 River Street headquarters from 5:30 p.m. -7:30 p.m.

“Art offers an important channel for exploring our creative skills and capabilities. This class offers an invaluable opportunity to experiment with paint as a different means of self-expression,” said Mayor Lisa Baldelli-Hunt. “Hats off to our parks and recreation staff for empowering the public an opportunity to tap into their inner Picasso, Matisse or Renoir.”

The $10 per-class fee includes art materials and supplies, light snacks and beverages. Space is limited. All children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian throughout the duration of the class. Early pre-registration for each class is required and highly encouraged. Registration forms may be retrieved from a marked box located outside the parks and recreation office or by emailing Parks & Recreation Superintendent Elizabeth Kerrigan at This email address is being protected from spambots.

“This class is ideal for children age 10 and older and adults of any and all artistic skill levels,” said Ms. Kerrigan. “At the end of each class, each participant leaves with the masterpiece they painted on canvas and we always take a group photo together.”

“To know that this class might help in tapping some unrealized artistic talent existing among us is extremely exciting. Jillian has an unbelievable knack for inspiring the artist within each Paint Night student. The City proudly offers this interesting class,” said Mayor Lisa Baldelli-Hunt.
