Art Jam: Creative Workshops

*Workshops will resume in Fall 2018*

Flex your creativity muscle with one (or several) of these fun workshops. Sessions are designed to teach beginners essential skills that will give them confidence and direction to find their unique style and strengths as an artist. Once participants have a general foundation, they are encouraged to attend the Acrylic Play or Illustration Studio workshops. These sessions are recurring and facilitate the development and completion of individual projects with loose instruction in a social environment surrounded by other creative individuals.
