Mix, Mingle & Make Art!
Tired of the typical options for getting out of the house and meeting people on a weeknight? Or just want a break from your Monday through Friday evening routine at home? Mix, Mingle & Make is a facilitated open studio for adults who wish to meet and spend time with other adults while they explore the creative process of their choice.
Chris will provide and demonstrate a few different fun, easy, and engaging art-making techniques each class for participants to explore independently or with guidance to whatever degree they feel satisfied. Participants are also free to come with their own ideas for creative projects, and either use our available supplies or bring their own. All skill levels welcome! Participants are invited to join Open Mic Night following this class to extend their evening out!
