Art for Pleasure a Class Series and Fundraiser

Enjoy the Social Pleasure of Art-Making in Community

In this fun, relaxing, creative class series you will:

  • build skills, as you experiment with different tools, techniques, styles, and materials;
  • discover how color, texture, shape, and line unite to create works of art.
  • create original works of art while you connect with fellow art-makers;
  • and, explore the works of famous artists.

The relaxed studio atmosphere will encourage creative expression and offer opportunities for you to see and think about the visual world in new ways.

Get in touch with your inner artist even if you’ve never made art before!
