Art Workshops

Want to make a theremin synthesizer?  How about a macramé plant hanger or watercolor portrait? We offer exciting informal art workshops, in a relaxed and unpretentious environment to help you get creative and take your mind off your regular classes for awhile, as well as to discover and foster new skills and talents you never knew you had!

The workshops are usually led by some of the DFW area’s top artists, so you have an amazing opportunity to learn from the best-- right here on campus and absolutely free!

Due to the type of event and materials involved, we often have to keep our workshops small. Space at our workshops is, therefore, very limited.  The best way to ensure entrance is to arrive early (15-20min).   Very rarely we will have electronic sign-ups for more selective workshops that require previous skills.

Birdie Busch has been making and recording independent music from her home base of Philadelphia for a solid decade. A combination of loyal radio support across the U.S with every recording, live touring, and solid albums put out both herself and on adventurous independents like Bar None Records has created a constellation of connect the dots that has people listening to her music and making the claim that it’s some of the best they’ve known.

Five full lengths, two EP’s, and a few singles has had her creating sonic song soundscapes with some of Philly’s finest musicians, producers, and engineers.  Critics from American Songwriter to Village Voice have found her of kindred spirit from everyone from Syd Barrett to Eudora Welty, and seem to just keep referring to what she does as her own thing and appreciating that strange place where it resides. City Paper says, “She’s noisy when she might’ve hushed up, nervy when most are relaxed, funny when others stay forlorn and dressy when she could be buttoned-up.”  It’s this comfort to contain multitudes that has had her and her band sharing stages with everyone from Richard Thompson and Richie Havens to Dr. Dog and Junip.
