Open Art Studio: Every Wednesday 4:00-5:30 pm

Hey, Madison high school students!
Need to work on your portfolio? Want to try a new collage technique? Communication Director and Arts Manager Jennifer Bastian hosts an open art studio every Wednesday afternoon. During December, January and February, we will be focusing on collage, zines, and exploring other artists making this work. Supplies for drawing, painting, collage and more will be provided free of charge.
Bring yourself, bring friends, make art, have snacks.

Coming up:

Artist Book Workshop Series with Jamie Ho Wednesdays 4-5:30pm in April-May

Current Exhibition:

Considering Outsider Art: A Group Exhibition at Communication

Runs January 26th- March 30th 2019
