MAKE TIME FOR ART 2020

We want to make art a priority in 2020. Join us in our studio over 2020, clear from the distractions of day to day life. This is time to focus on your art! This will be a freestyle meetup. Bring your current project, paint, sketch, write, draw through 2020 with us.

We are a small group of artists in the east bay that meet monthly to work on our own art projects. We open our studio/gallery to local artists to come in and work on their own projects.

Come get to know other local artists and set time aside to make art with us!

WHAT TO BRING:
*Sketchbook, paper or canvas (we have extra easels for those in need)
*Paints, pencils, ink, brushes etc
*Feel free to bring snacks & drinks although we typically have some snacks/drinks available for a small donation.
*Indoor and/or outdoor depending on the number of attendees. So dress appropriately.
* BYOB, BYOW, BYOP

Note: We also will have a variety of art supplies to share with everyone and a few easels around as well. Try charcoal or watercolor. Please just be respectful of the studio supplies and return them to their proper homes.

MONEY:
Suggested donation is $5-$10+. We use this to buy art supplies, snacks, drinks as well as pay rent and pay meetup.com group fees. Your donations keep our doors open. No one is ever turned away due to lack of funds.
