Crazy Hat Paint Dance Party! (New Quarterly Schedule)

Hi Crazy Paint Dancers!

Our Paint Dancing events have always been full capacity when we haven't had one for a few months. To keep the attendance high, we are moving Paint Dancing to a quarterly schedule. The next event in Sept 13th.

Everyone loves the crazy hat parties. The last one we had, many people made custom hats from large paper that we provided. So we are doing it again! We will provide the big paper, tape and scissors. You will be surprised to see how easy it is to make and then paint your own crazy hat! Many people will be bringing hats to paint on and wear while they are making their new paper hat!

Along with your hat, put on a old white shirt or visit the local thrift store and buy one. Toss it on and let EVERYONE at the party use you as a Human Canvas while we dance and hang out! If you are really feeling adventurous, wear some white pants, hats, gloves, shoes, accessories, you name it. Feel free to wear as much white you like! :)

Paint Dancing is a new venue created solely for the purpose of openly expressing yourself in 2 totally different mediums - AT ONCE! During this event, we will be PAINTING and DANCING (at the same time) in the private studio of abstract painter and hunger awareness activist, Matt Jones. We will be playing classic dance music from the 70's and 80's!

Where: Gasworks Gallery

Why: To support local food banks around the country!
