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.
