Earth Canvas Group Project – Wednesday, October 19, 2016 – 6:30 – 8:30 pm at Chroma Art Bar


Be a part of something bigger! This is a fun group project, with a piece to take home at the end of the night. A local artist will be guiding us through the first steps in creating your masterpiece.

We will start with a center canvas that says, “The Earth Without Art is Just “Eh”. Everyone will then paint a canvas with their rendition of the Earth, using photos and stencils to guide them. Paint it realistically, funky, detailed, or simply…and then we will put them all together to make a giant “quilt”-like piece! Your painting is yours to take home at the end of the night.
Tickets available sign up here:
