Alcohol Inks + Poetry

The Art Center is excited to co-offer winter workshops with the Blue Pig Gallery in beautiful Palisade. Workshops will be held upstairs at the Blue Pig in over 2,000 square feet of open space, incredibly lit by eight large windows and seven artist workshop sinks to live for. Start your workshop day with a pastry from Slice of Life bakery and join us for lunch in one of our local cafés. Beginning January 11th, 2017, every Wednesday is a WCCA/Blue Pig workshop day as well as selected Saturdays.

Registration is through the Blue Pig: 970-464-4819 (open Tuesday – Sunday, 10am-5pm)
