Britney wants you to write.

No writing experience necessary! Everyone has a story. Remember that time you binged the Great British Bake Off and decided to make a six-layer, rough-puff blah-blah-blah, but as it baked, all the butter oozed out and caught fire? And after the smoke settled, you pretended the oven didn’t exist, which was fine because it was summer, so you shoved frozen tater tots onto a fork and enjoyed them like tiny starchy popsicles, which you posted about on social media, which made Big Potato reach out, and now you’re a rich tuber influencer?

The world needs to read your truth.

Join us to get that story, anecdote or obsession out of your head and into a small printed book. Keep your small printed book for yourself or make lots of copies and give to friends, or leave them in the tater tot aisle, you tater tot queen!

• If one class is postponed due to weather or unforeseen instructor circumstances, the rain date is March 13.

Britney Spears doesn't actually condone this class although Studio School believes she would like it, if she knew about it. Our boss made us say that.

Open Studio time is included with registration. Open Studio allows currently enrolled students to work on their projects in Oklahoma Contemporary’s studios outside of class meetings. Availability varies weekly and times are posted outside each studio.
