Who’s the Artist? YOU!

arty-party-group-shot-1When was the last time you did something for you? It’s time to stop, take a breath, and decide you are going to do something fun and creative! We all have those artistic ideas rolling around in our minds, and we ask ourselves, can I really do this? You can!

On Saturday, November 5, you will have the opportunity to work with NIA, a group of local artists I helped to found. Longtime readers of this blog will know that we have had multiple group shows here in Chicago. Each of us brings to the table a unique set of skills, from drawing and painting to mixed media collage work.

We are ready to share our knowledge with you in a series of live demos, after which you will be let loose to take over the art studio!! We will have all kinds of art supplies on hand for you to play with, from pastels to paint. The whole NIA team will be with you to answer your questions about the materials.

This is your chance to let loose and experiment! Each guest gets a blank canvas to fill with their ARTIEST ideas! Whether you have never touched a paintbrush, or whether you are comfortable with the term ‘substrate’, you will have free reign to be the artist! Who’s the artist? YOU are!

This event is BYOB! For more information and to register, click here.
