Roll up your sleeves, grab a drink from the bar, rock out to some tunes, and feel inspiration flow as your inhibitions fall away.

If you liked Cocktails and Clay, Prints & Pints, and Shots in the Darkroom, you’ll love ARTBAR, where all three come together in a big way to get your creative juices flowing.

A new ARTventure for creative adults, ARTBAR features art making workshops like clay hand building, screen printing, and darkroom photography, all set to music and with a cash bar provided by Maria’s Packaged Goods and Community Bar.

Join us at the debut of ARTBAR on Mischief Night, where the first 100 guests will receive a free goodie bag with mischievous treats inside!

Mischief Night’s ARTBAR includes:

Lumetype Photography with Caro D’Offay and Laura Gilmore:

There will be glowing buckets of eyeballs, hair, noses and ears to choose from. Use these body parts to create a monster. Take your monster into the darkroom, lay it down on light-sensitive paper and print it up in photo chemicals! To add a little mischief to the equation, each person gets to put their monster on a communal piece of paper. At the end of the night we’ll print the paper up and post it online where you can see how all of the monsters interacted with one another.

Screenprinting with Lisa Jenschke:

With a number of fun, freaky, seasonal screens to choose from, you’ll learn to make solitary prints or layer images on top of one another to make unique works on paper!

Exquisite Corpse Claybuilding with Susan Volk:

Grab some clay and add on to this shape-shifting monster. Together, we’ll build a ghoulish beast that’s never been seen before!
