Sweet Tree Arts will be offering a four-week group beginning Tuesday, July 8, from 6:30 to 8 p.m.

Using stories of their choosing, members will learn fun and applicable skills for learning to listen more actively while improving communication in both personal and professional relationships. This class is a prerequisite to the upcoming and exciting Transformative Storytelling group being offered in August at Sweet Tree Arts, located at 4 Church St. in Hope.
