Join us for a series of free Zoom art classes with local artist Kelly Slater.

  • February 25 explore the many possibilities of making prints using common arts and crafts supplies, as well as office supplies.
  • March 11 we will explore several different ways of making watercolor prints.
  • April 15, will focus on drawing experiments and will invite participants to overcome any and all fears of drawing by letting go of control.
  • April 29 we’ll be making accordion-style artists books.

All sessions will last 90 minutes—running from 6:30 – 8:00 pm on a Thursday. Workshops are open to ages teen through adult and all materials will be provided.  Sign up for one or all four sessions. 

Kelly’s philosophy is that art making is not just for experts.  Instead, art can and should be fun and accessible.  All people can improve both their artistic skills and their quality of life simply by making art into a playful and experimental form of recreation. 

Space is limited.
