EVERY THIRD WEDNESDAY
6:00-8:00PM PT Ages 10-17

Instructor:  Rotating Instructors

Join us for a night of self expression every third Wednesday of the month.  We are partnering with Positive Images to provide a safe and inclusive space for teens to find their artistic voice through radical self expression. Each month we will explore a new art theme including a demonstration from a professional artist and all the materials needed to make the project.  We will also provide additional art materials if you just need a space to hang out and make your own art!
 
Dinner and soft drinks included!  Bring your friends!  This club offers an artistic community of inclusion for all identities of gender, sexuality, race, and ethnicity.

Positive Images is a grassroots organization whose mission is to provide support, advocacy and education to Sonoma County’s LGBTQIA+ community. We nurture positive self image through creating an affirming environment where everyone can explore their identities, develop leadership skills and participate in building a just and equitable society

Please register in advance so we know how much food to get!

All Are Welcome! Suggested Donation: $5-25 (upon arrival)

Age 10-17
