The following classes are scheduled at The Westmoreland Museum of American Art in Greensburg:

• “Step Into the Art,” 1-4 p.m. Nov. 4

This writing workshop will explore selected pieces of art through the written word. A museum educator will point out key elements and pose questions about selected works and members of the Ligonier Valley Writers will assist participants with crafting a story, essay or poem. Participants will then have a chance to share their writing with the group.

Registration deadline is Nov. 3.

• Pop-Up Studio: Intermediate Figure Drawing, 6-8 p.m. Nov. 8

A live model will provide the subject for the class to be led by Kenneth Nicholson, building on skills that were introduced in a prior session. Artists of all skill and experience levels are welcome.

Nicholson is an adjunct instructor at Seton Hill University and Westmoreland County Community College. His work will be featured in “Dark Matter,” an exhibition opening Dec. 4 in The Westmoreland’s Robertshaw Gallery.

Registration deadline is Nov. 6; participants must be 18 or older.

Fee for either session is $25, or $20 for members. Space is limited. Refreshments will be provided.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
