ART LOUNGE (CREATE) OPEN STUDIO - OPEN STAGE

Leesburg Center for the Arts

1st Wednesday of the month ART LOUNGE has an emphasis on CREATING in an urban open studio while having the opportunity to share your work on stage. THE HOUSE LIGHTS WILL BE UP SO WE CAN MAKE ART SEPARATELY OR TOGETHER. THE STAGE IS OPEN TO PERFORM BUT DON'T EXPECT QUIET AND ALL EYES AND EARS UPON YOU. (If you are shy and want to practice or jam on a stage it is a good opportunity. If you require attention then 3rd Wednesday ART LOUNGE (SHARE) is more suited.) ************ Get pumped by the music and experience an Urban Open Studio Vibe. OPEN STUDIO - ART CREATE Enjoy our co-create space. Connect with others. Try something new using the art supplies set out in the lounge area or bring something you are working on. Feel inspired in the artistic environment. OPEN STAGE - ART SHARE Share your music, dance or sing, perform clean comedy, show off multimedia, have a jam session. We only ask that in order to keep the space "chill" that you avoid politics, religion and profanity. *** The idea of ART LOUNGE (CREATE & SHARE) is to provide an atmosphere where people can make and share the creative things that juice them all while hanging out in a chill urban environment. MAKE SOME ART PRESENT YOUR ART MEET LIKE-MINDED PEOPLE $5 DONATION SUGGESTED (ASK ABOUT MEMBERSHIP) COMPLEMENTARY COFFEE & INFUSED WATER OR BYOB (WE CAN "CHILL" IT.)
