    ACTA 66- All About Art Events

    rt Events’ is the umbrella term I’ve given to in-person events where we create art. This includes painting parties, art camps, and art classes. 

    We’ve talked about art events on the podcast before when we heard from Emily Magone in episode #48, where she explained HOW to conduct painting parties. Now we want to explore the topic again, but look broadly at the pros and cons of all kinds of art events!
