February Theme: Bugtastic
They can be cute, they can be creepy, it’s bugs and all their friends! This month in the studio we are providing prompts about all the underrated and sometimes undergrown creatures of the earth. If this isn’t your cup of bug juice, visitors are welcome to dig through the studio supply closet and make something from their own imagination. Whichever path you choose we know the artist within you will snail it!
March Theme: Farm Fresh
March on down to the farm with us this month and cultivate some fresh art. Get inspired by tasty produce and adorable farm critters with our provided prompts. Visitors are always welcome to graze through the Studio’s supply closet and make something from their imagination.
Every Saturday from 11:00 AM–2:00 PM
