free art instruction at South17.
While technique and various media are introduced, the aim of the art sessions is to nurture our latent talents.
Everyone, including and especially those with little to no experience or formal training, is invited to come in, relax, have some cake, enjoy the music, and uncover their inner visionary artist.
Stemming from the belief that absolutely everyone possesses a unique, original vision, the mission of South17 is to gently coax it out, and then help shape it and expand it.
We hope to demystify the art process and cut through preconceived notions about who and what an artist is. It is an experiment in democratization through which new voices, new forms and new directions might be discovered.
South17 is an open studio. Participants are encouraged to return at anytime to utilize our space, supplies, and assistance as they continue the exploration and development of their work.
