March 3-Hour Tasters: Your Guide To A Weekend Of Making

By Cathy Niland | 2.26.2020

Spring is the season of reinvention and reimagination—what better time to stretch your creative muscles and try something new! On March 28 and 29 we’re hosting twenty-one different 3-Hour Taster classes, each a perfect opportunity to explore a new art form without the deeper commitment of a full course.

If you’re still in the testing phase of your creativity, you can take multiple classes in one weekend. Saturday and Sunday have 3-Hour Tasters running in the morning and afternoon so the most adventurous of you can try up to four different art forms in a single weekend.

If you are not learning, you are not growing. I took a welding class and it rocked! Best thing about taking these classes—getting to meet the sweetest individuals! Oh, and keeping the projects, too!

Mig Welding student

To help you track your time in the studio, we’ve put together a Your 3-Hour Taster Checklist—sort of like a personal scavenger hunt—so you can track your creative accomplishments and figure out which medium you’d like to explore more in the future. Download and print your own version before your weekend of making.

Tasters are already filling up so don’t wait to sign up!
