Adult Art Evenings are designed for both those who never got around to taking that art class in college and for those who already enjoy the satisfaction of a personal art practice but could use an infusion of ideas, technique, and artistic camaraderie.

Join us for a weekly dose of project inspiration, artistic experimentation, and lively conversation in a low-key, but thoroughly creative atmosphere.

with Jen Burke

Workshops take place at YAWS Totland Studio 
1700 McGee Street at Virginia St. in North Berkeley
