Newark, N.J., sponsors a class in decorating on a budget
News from Philadelphia Inquirer:

NEWARK, N.J. – Fashion designer J. Wesley Tann had a piece of advice for the six women who signed up for his city-sponsored class on home decorating.

“The Dollar Store makes you look so good,” Tann told them. “You’ll wonder how you ever got along without it.”

Tann, an impeccably dressed octogenarian, has become an etiquette expert and event planner in Newark. He is now showing city residents how to make their homes more beautiful on a budget. The new class aims to bring city beautification indoors with small, inexpensive dashes of flair.

“Money is scarce, and people don’t realize that you can have beautiful things without spending a lot of money,” Tann said.

Money is tight all around – especially for the City of Newark, which in recent years has cut nearly 1,000 employees.

The $ 2,000 required for the decor program comes out of the city’s recreation budget.

“This class offers Newark residents an opportunity to learn how they can create charming interior decorating without spending large amounts of money,” said Tharien Kareem Arnold, the city’s director of neighborhood and recreational services, in a statement. “They will also learn personal skills and expand their creativity. I commend our Recreation team on developing and maintaining this class.”
