Art Club is a monthly meeting of people who love art. We select a different topic each month, and enjoy a casual staff-led discussion (with PowerPoint slides) accompanied by coffee and treats. Participants are encouraged, though not required, to submit discussion suggestions of art that is related to the topic. It's like a book club, but without as much homework!
Coffee and treats are served. Please bring your own coffee cup!
