Age: Adults of all ages.

Cost: Free. No registration required.

What to Bring: Snacks and a (non-alcoholic) beverage. We provide the paper and art supplies.

What: This is a fun, weird, goofy, low-pressure art program for adults and requires no artistic ability! Each month we feature a different theme and art activity which always results in whacky and hilarious creations. Past Bad Art Nights have included Van Gogh inspired crayon art and drawings of animal hybrids. At the end of the evening, we vote on who we think was the worst at art and the winner takes home a prize.
