Thursday Night Series

This isn't your typical wine-and-paint workshop! Join Studio School for an evening of grown-up fun and drinks and nibbles from Cafe Contemporary 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. All supplies are included!

When signing up for a class, all students agree to abide by the policies set forth in the Student Handbook. Masks are required at all time in Studio School because classes involve sustained contact in enclosed spaces. Failure to wear a mask will result in removal from class without a refund.
