Open Studio Paint Night
When: Tuesday, January 15, 6pm-8:30pm
What: During “Open Studio Paint Night,” you can pick a selection from our library or paint anything you have in mind. Artist Open Studio Night is a great opportunity to kick back, relax and do your own thing solo or with friends and family. The bar will be open, and you can bring in your own food or snacks. This class does not provide an instructor and is NOT a step by step class. However, there will be an artist in the studio to help get you started, assist you along the way, and ensure that you’re having a ball just like the traditional class.
