What we're about
Upcoming events (5+)
Join other art and photography lovers to experience the DMA together. Join us for a guided art-making series for adults, one Thursday every month. Drop by and stay for as long as you want. Whether it's a few minutes or an hour, you'll leave with a new skill and your own creation. No previous experience necessary and all materials provided. Learn skills from a local artist to help you create a portrait of a live model with pastels. The model will be wearing period clothing connected to the Berthe Morisot, Woman Impressionist exhibition and you will learn techniques using one of Morisot's chosen mediums.

We leave at 7:15 and walk the neighborhood. We will meet at Serious Pizza and work the area around it. Afterward, we will eat pizza. This is always a fun night out. We do not usually have a model to photograph, so we work on interacting with strangers on the street. There is a surprising amount of public participation and serendipity in Deep Ellum. You may need to pay for parking. If you are late you can text me at[masked] to catch up with us. We only work a few blocks, and are usually easy to find.
Don't worry about making a mess, the Fabrication Yard is the perfect place to try the "drip painting" technique developed by Jackson Pollock. Your fee will include two blank 16x20 inch canvases and the paint and brushes used in the workshop. Additional canvases can be purchased for $10. Or if you like you can bring your own canvases and chip for the paint. You can pay with cash at the event, Paypal to my email: [masked], or use Meetup. $20 If you have never been to the Fabrication Yard, GPS can lead you to roads that are closed due to construction. I recommend going early if it is your first time finding the building. If you would like to contribute to help cover the cost of running this group, you can “chip in” through the link below or through my PayPal account. Your contribution will go to covering our Meetup website fees, providing bottled water at events, Google Drive fees, and other costs I have as the host of events. https://secure.meetup.com/Dallas-Art-and-Photography-Meetup/contribute/ PayPal: [masked]
Magician Landon Stark will perform for our cameras at this free event. Stark is a much sought after entertainer and local talent. You will have the opportunity to photograph him in action as he does tricks in the urban setting of downtown Plano. There is also a large park for a variety of backgrounds. This will be one of our most fun workshops, so come out and we will send him the TFP images in exchange for a free show.
