Family Workshop: Myth Making
Saturday, Sept 30, 2017, 11 AM - 1 PM
Patterson-Appleton Arts Center
Cost $5 per child

Families are invited to explore creatures from the Dogon universe, watch artist demonstrations, and hear a traditional story from thirteenth-century Mali before using the cen cen bari (local pigment painting) and chiffon de Same (affixing cloth scraps) techniques to create a work of art that represents personal and shared histories. Adults do not need a ticket. $5 per child. Class size is limited.

Dr. Sketchy's Anti-Art School (Denton)
Every Third Thursday @ PAAC | 6 - 9 PM

Patterson-Appleton Arts Center
$5 to draw, BYOB

Dr. Sketchy's Anti-Art school is the world's premier alt. drawing movement. Artists draw glamorous underground performers in a friendly BYOB environment (21 and up). Founded in 2005 at a dive bar in Brooklyn, Dr. Sketchy's has now spread to over 100 cities around the world. Join the Arts Council and artist Joe Duncan on the third Thursday of each month, as part of our Thursday Nights at the PAAC event lineup; we will host a different theme/model each month (i.e. roller derby, pirates) and it's only $5 to draw, so come in sit down, and BYOB.
