Fogartyville Community Media and Arts Center will kick off their ‘Make Art Happy Hour’ in February. There will be a series of three events from 6-8:30pm on the fourth Monday of the month. Fogartyville invites adults for artistic fun in a relaxed social setting, which includes snacks and refreshments.
This is a great opportunity for friends to hang out, a unique date night option, or a place to come solo and connect with fellow art enthusiasts. Each session will be led by a different instructor. No experience required. The $20 cost per session includes all materials necessary to complete the art project, snacks and one drink ticket. You can register for all 3 sessions for $50. Register in advance at wslr.org.
Monday, February 25 – Pour Art
Whether you want to call it fluid art, liquid art, or acrylic pouring, there’s nothing more satisfying than creating abstract masterpieces by letting pigment run amok. This form of abstract art uses acrylics with a runny consistency to create psychedelic paintings. There are endless creative possibilities thanks to different ways to combine acrylic paints and there’s something so satisfying about watching it spill across a surface. Instructor Debby Hall.
