Community Critique Night

Every fourth Thursday of the month, 6-8pm

If you're a local artist/writer/maker seeking a space where you can discuss what you create and look at others' work, join us for critique night! We'll be providing each other with critical feedback, sharing food and drink, and creating a positive and thoughtful atmosphere for challenging each other in the work we make.   Open to public.  Drop-ins welcome.

Summer Camps with the Iowa Youth Writing Project!

Register here:

Gaulimaufry: a jumble of art, writing, and fun!
with Isabelle Von Sturm-Day
Grades 3-6
Monday-Friday, June 19-23, 2017
9:00 am – 12:00 pm

Join us for a week of fun using art and words fused together to create amazing stories! Students may illustrate their own poetry, design the packaging for a new food they've invented, and give life to an adjective (what is Funny's favorite color?). We'll use writing in combination with mixed media methods, collage, and more to explore the playful possibilities of storytelling.

Superhero Gear!
with Emily Jalinsky & Kalmia Strong
Kindergarten - Grade 2
Monday-Friday, July 17-21, 2017
9:00 am – 12:00 pm

Who would you be as a superhero? This camp will answer that question while exploring character development, visual design, and storytelling. We will address alternative representations of superheroes and social issues that students care about, with an emphasis on accountability, self-empowerment, and social justice. Each student will imagine a superhero alter-ego unique to their own interests, creating a costume and written story for their character.
