Art Happy Hour

Art Happy Hour

A monthly series encouraging recreational and fun interactions with art and artists. Bring a date (or your best friend!) to meet a local artist and try something new! Sip some wine and get creative. No experience necessary, just bring your creative spirit!

Register early – classes fill quickly! Walk-ins accepted only if class is not full. Call us to check availability.
