South Fork Grange and Josephy Center have partnered to bring art classes closer to Wallowa and Lostine residents!  Each month we will bring a different art, craft, life or outdoor skill for you to learn.  Along with these great classes, taught by many different teachers, South Fork Grange has a wonderful library to share.  Many of these classes will incorporate this small but mighty library into lessons.

We will be updating this page often as classes are set so visit often to see all your great choices!

Please sign up online below or call Josephy Center to pay for your class.  Bring your printed receipt to class.
