The Creatives Meetup
Wednesday afternoons from
1-5pm this Fall.
The Creatives Meetup is a FREE, weekly open studio on Wednesdays at The Lebel.
Easels, tables and chairs are provided- you bring the rest!
The Allied Arts Council is opening up its boardroom on Wednesday afternoons for artists to meet up and work together, chat, collaborate or just hang out and make connections.
Started in the fall of 2022 by Heidi Bengry, this Wednesday artist meetup is a place where artists can come work in a space together for a few hours with no instruction provided. This is a great opportunity to meet up and chat with other creatives in your community, get advice, critiques or work on your own with some company. Bring your supplies, some inspiration and your latest works!
*Individuals 18 and under interested in participating in The Creatives Meetup must be accompanied by an adult. *
