Tuesday, Oct 22, 7:00pm to 8:30pm

Due to the burst of energy & excitement around the Bubbler Room these days, Emily, our artist-in-residence, has decided to offer this bonus session. “Drop-in Draw” will be an extension of her open studio, but with an emphasis on simply coming to hang out and draw together! She’ll be issuing a special prompt that day for anyone who comes by!

This will be geared towards adults and no registration is needed. No experience or supplies are necessary - but feel free to bring along your favorite drawing materials.
