Art Workshops

Join us for our exciting art workshops in a laid-back and welcoming setting, providing a refreshing break from your regular classes. Unleash your creativity, explore new talents, and cultivate skills you never knew you possessed!

These workshops are typically led by talented artists from the DFW area, granting you a fantastic opportunity to learn from the finest right here on campus. And, the best part is, it's absolutely free!

Given the nature of the events and the materials used, our workshops are sometimes limited in size. Arriving early (15-20 minutes) is a great way to guarantee your spot. Occasionally, we may have electronic sign-ups for more specialized or popular workshops.
