Join Sweetwater for its Open House event, which coincides with the artist reception for our Student/Instructor Exhibition featured in the Balcony Gallery. Sweetwater instructors will be on hand to provide demonstrations and hands-on activities in a variety of artistic media for the whole family to enjoy. Observe professional artists as they paint and draw, make a bowl to donate to Just Harvest’s Empty Bowls Dinner on the potter’s wheel, explore everything your local art center has to offer and find out how you can become involved!

Sweetwater’s Open House is free and open to the public. All ages welcome!


*To participate in Empty Bowls – $3/members, $5/non-members
