SFArtsED is thrilled to present a series of free visual-arts workshops which will take place every Third Saturday of each month from 2–4 PM in the SFArtsED gallery at 1275 Minnesota Street. Taught by SFArtsED Artist Mentors, these making-oriented events are geared towards visitors of all ages who are interested in creative expression! From shadow puppet-making to paper-pulp sculpture and beyond, these workshops are a great way to learn about new art processes and techniques. Materials are provided and drop-ins are welcome.

UPCOMING: Saturday, November 19, 2–4PM

In conjunction with SFArtsED Artist Mentor Renée Gertler’s exhibition Scintilla Glimmer, which will be on view in the gallery through Dec. 3, Renée and dancer/choreographer Patricia West will lead participants in a movement exercise based on Gertler’s own practice for initiating her art-making process. Participants will then draw inspiration from this exercise as well as Gertler’s works on view in her exhibition to create their own artwork. The movement exercise will begin at 2 pm. Drop-ins are welcome for the art making portion of the workshop.
