Course Description

Enjoy an artistic evening in Studio 1–whether you wish to augment your AAN class with more studio time, or are looking for clean space to do your artwork in every week. We welcome artists working in pencil, ink, oil, acrylic, watercolor, fabric art, handmade jewelry, and mixed media. Elizabeth will be on hand as monitor, but there will be no instruction. Materials with fumes, like glues, turpentine, Liquin, spray fixatives, etc, and materials that kicks up dust are not allowed. Pop on your earphones, sign up with a friend for a scheduled night out, or join in the group chat and make new friends. You may arrive anytime after 5pm, but you must be completely cleaned up and out the door by 8pm. ALL LEVELS WELCOME.
