Bad Art Night
Craft Night for Adults
Wednesday | May 18 | 6:00 pm
Bard Room
Want a way to feel like a kid again with no pressure to make good art? Come to Bad Art Night at MRL. We’ll have art supplies to make all the best “bad art” including macaroni, yarn, paper, paints, glitter, and more. Whether you love your finished masterpiece, love to laugh at it, or just enjoy the nostalgia, you’ll have a fun night with other creative adults. No one is encouraged to be a Van Gogh, or Picasso at the Bad Art Night. It’s a no-holds-barred event for the artistically challenged to have a little fun and create something truly creative or truly awful.
