So bring something that you’re working on - like a new piece for the Exquisite Corpse exhibit - and spend some time creating. If you have a favorite technique or material that you’d like to share with the others, feel free to bring that along to demonstrate!
Pick up your Post Cards for the Bloomingdale show also!!!!

All day workday! Come when you can and leave when you have to. This is a great opportunity to spread out and work on something for an extended period. So bring your materials and work in progress as well as a sack lunch or snack.
