We are collaborating with Wheelhouse studios, who will be hosting their Free Art Friday from 5-9 and focusing on multiple mixed media crafting projects. While we are collaborating with Wheelhouse Studios, their craft is NOT related to our theme of Nowruz. Feel free to come by Wheelhouse Studios early though (5-9pm) to make some mixed media paintings, decoupage tissue imagery, and hardware store jewelry!
