CREATIONS & LIBATIONS

On the 4th Tuesday of each month, LGBTQIA+ community and their allies come together to socialize, make art, network, and just have fun with or without an adult beverage. The class will feature a variety of projects in a variety of media for all levels. You will feel comfortable exploring creativity if you have no experience making art and have fun if you are an accomplished working artist, all in a safe, welcoming environment.

We conceived of this class in hopes of supporting and making space for LGBTQIA+ community members in the Roaring Fork Valley.  If you are an ally and are interested in this class, we ask that you consider emailing Paul to be put on the waitlist so we can prioritize LGBTQIA+ members of our community. Thank you!
