Friday Night Frolics are always a BIG HIT at ArtSmart.  This is a chance to mingle, create and get your creative juices flowing.  You have an assortment of frolics to choose from.  Have you ever wanted to try your hand at Alcohol Ink Painting?  Well here’s your chance.  Nancy Koehler who has been working with this medium for some time now, will have paints and everything you need to create your own masterpiece.  Maybe you have seen some of Sonya Nicholson’s origami creations at Boone Hospital or the Bluestem Gallery in Columbia.  Well, what a great chance to learn alongside Sonya as she leads us in the making of your very own Origami Crane Ornament.

As a long time member of Missouri Fiber Artists and Columbia Weavers and Spinners Guild, Cindy Kilfoyle will be happy to get you started on your own Needle Felting creation that may spark an interest into something new.  Talking about fiber arts, pull up a chair and enjoy the Relaxing with Embroidery.  Annie Webster is all about great ways to unwind, explore ideas, and find inspiration for future artwork.  

Maybe you are feeling lucky, well do ya?  If so, then you definitely need to create your own Lucky Charm alongside Bob Lyall who has been stamping, cutting, bending, welding metal for what seems like a lifetime.  Feeling like you need to pick up a pencil or acrylic marker? Then do we have the frolic for you…Light + Dark Drawing with Maggie Lowe.  This lady will have all the tools you need as well as some inspiration to get you started on your new work of art.

The great thing about all these amazing artists and the frolics they are leading on Friday night….You can take one or you can do them ALL!! Move about table to table as you like.  It is a fun filled evening that you don’t want to miss.
