First Friday Art Samplers

On the first Friday of each month, VisArts offers first-come, first-served art classes in two seatings. Bring a group of friends, a date or your entire family for this special night out!

The first session runs from 6-7:15 p.m. and the second runs from 7:30-8:45 p.m. Classes cost $15 and we guarantee that you’ll make something cool and still make it on time to your dinner reservation.

Day-of registration begins at 5 p.m. in VisArts’ lobby. There’s no online or advanced registration for these one-off classes. Choose from at least five rotating sampler topics each month.

On Friday, July 6, we’re offering:

Raku: Japanese Pottery Glazing 6-9pm (all ages with adult)
Artmaking in the Darkroom: Session 1 (6-7:15) & Session 2 (7:30-8:45) (all ages with adult)
Shibori Dyed Handkerchiefs: Session 1 (6-7:15) & Session 2 (7:30-8:45) (12+ with adult)
Carve your own Stamp: Session 1 (6-7:15) & Session 2 (7:30-8:45) (12+ with adult)

Starting on September 14, VisArts will host Second Fridays. It’s just like the First Friday Art Samplers that you know and love, but on the second Friday of each month. Now you don’t have to miss your favorite gallery openings!

First-come, first-served signs-ups for Second Fridays start at 5 p.m. in VisArts’ lobby. Watch an artist demonstration between 5 and 6 p.m., then head to your class at 6 p.m. or come back for the second session, which starts at 7:30 p.m.

All classes cost $15 and you can expect five or six class options each week.
