Arts Underground

Meets every Thursday from 6-9pm, September 22 through May 18 and is a great way to experiment with a variety of mediums.

All materials are included in ceramics (clay, glazes & firing), painting & drawing (paints, brushes, paper, pencils). Fused Glass artists are asked to pay $1.00 per pendant they make to help offset the glass expenses. No registration required. Adults (20+) $10.00 Youth (19 and under) $5.00
