Thursday, November 16, 7 - 9:30 pm
Raise your glass to a new kind of night out! Inspired by Jin-me Yoon’s exhibition Spectral Tides, create your own mixed media artwork using paint, pastels and photo collage on wooden cradles. Artist and educator Yvonne Vander Kooi will share various techniques and approaches to image making that will surprise and delight! Create an artwork to take home, have fun and catch up with friends—you don't have to be an artist to be creative.
