About the Event

Firsthand Experiences bring contemporary artists together with learners ages 13 and up for hands-on programs that combine making, gallery conversations, and discovery.

Learn the step-by-step process of selecting and refining personal recipes, drawing them, and creating comic book-inspired art that you can share with your friends and family. Art supplies provided. No experience required.
