Friday Night Series


This isn't your typical wine-and-paint workshop!
Join us for an evening of grown-up fun while you take a crash course in creativity. No art skills needed, but you can flex those social muscles as you pick up a new art-making skill. 21+ only, please.

Supplies:
Registration costs for all Friday Night Series courses include a kit of supplies, which you can pick up at Oklahoma Contemporary the Wednesday-Friday before the course. If you would like these items shipped, please select that option at checkout and an extra fee will apply.

Online courses:
Due to the COVID-19 public health crisis, many workshops are taught in real-time over Zoom. Students are responsible for having a reliable Internet connection and a Zoom-compatible device with microphone, speakers and camera.

Outdoor courses: Some workshops are held outside at Oklahoma Contemporary. Masks are required and social distancing practices will be enforced. In the case of inclement weather, the event will be postponed or cancelled and all registrants will be notified via email.
