Stop by the Indianapolis Art Center this Friday, 6-8 p.m., for the fall open house. Taste free samples from Yats, Qdoba and the Broad Ripple Ice Cream Station, and listen to a steel-drum performance by Tom Berich.
Even better, the classrooms will be packed with demonstrations and hands-on activities, including pottery-making, jewelry-making (fusing and forging metal) and print-making. You can even create your own watercolor painting with the help of an Art Center instructor.
Don't want to make your own art? Buy unique pieces at the gift shop sidewalk sale and browse creations by Art Center students and faculty members. Whatever you buy, the proceeds will support local artists and one of the city's best venues for lifelong artistic education.
