Pop-Up Art Classes
We are excited to be able to provide “Pop-Up” art classes for those who are interested in a two-hour art adventure that requires no experience and nothing to bring!
Gather your friends, invite your relatives or sign on alone and enjoy an opportunity to try something new or indulge a long-lost hobby with no long-term commitment or investment required.
Until Covid-19 safety protocols change, these classes are offered via Zoom and are a great way to connect to family and friends!
At the end of the two hours you will have a finished piece of art to hang in your home or gift to someone!
$15 fee per person unless otherwise indicated.
Call the Art Alliance at 814-234-2740 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
