Art Party this Saturday at Studio 116!

We’re halfway through a busy week! On Monday we had our weekly Art Lessons, and then immediately followed it with a HUGE crowd to celebrate the launch of The Rubicon, which is the literary art journal published by Troy’s English Department.

This Thursday, we have our next installment of Art Lessons AND Brundidge is holding its Christmas Open House! Several downtown merchants are open late for this event. Drop your kids off for Art Lessons, and while they are busy enjoy looking around in our gallery and up and down Main Street!

On Saturday morning we have our Art Party! This hour-long event is aimed at younger kids, and is all ages friendly! We’ll start at 10am, and plan on having several fun creative activities. $10 includes all materials, and siblings are 2/$15.

Mark your calendar now- you do not want to miss them! Saturday July 12th, 7:30pm; admission by donation.
