NEXT EVENT:  THE ART OF MARBLING

As the holidays approach and everyone is making plans to celebrate, we are too! We have transformed the McAlpine building (400 W California) into a winter wonderland workshop and would be thrilled for you to join us in our pre-holiday party get together, The Art of Marbling!

On November 29th, 2017 local artist, Kerri Shadid, will walk us through her paper-marbling process and we’ll try our hands at making our own holiday themed cards. While we work we will also enjoy some merriment supplied by Vanessa House Beer Co. and light snacks all while we rock around the clock, from 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM.

This event is FREE and open to all Artisans, aspiring Artisans or anyone interested in learning more about how you can be involved with Arts Council OKC.

Please RSVP at 405-270-4848 or artisans@artscouncilokc.com to secure a spot.
