Create during an evening of art!

The biennial Hands-On event is returning to the Kirk Newman Art School on March 4, from 5-8 p.m. Participants can try their hand at several projects, taking home their own masterpieces at the end of the evening. This event is for all skill levels: current students interested in trying a different medium or technique, creatives who want to try a little bit of everything, and brand-new friends who have never picked up a paint brush before. Get to know the Kirk Newman Art School faculty and studios during this evening of exploration and fun.

Some of the hands-on projects will be:

fabricate jewelry using metals
assemble a metal sculpture
dye an item with indigo
decorate a ceramic pot with a rake glaze
spin yard on a wheel
throw on the pottery wheel
fuse a glass decoration
screenprint on a notecard or fabric
print a photogram
try your hand at drawing

Each project is between 20-30 minutes and no booking is necessary. A small nominal fee of $1-$25 will be charged for each activity, with most under $10. Children are welcome, but must be accompanied by an adult.
