A brush with the past

    For over 75 years a group of women artists has come together weekly in Wilmington to paint, socialize, and take care of a very special property.  The property is on the national registry of historic places and is where famed artist Howard Pyle taught some of his most famous students, including N.C. Wyeth.  First Experience gets a tour of this hidden gem.
