Makerspace Event & Class Calendar

Art is for Everyone

The Arlington Public Library is offering a free art series. Each month, a different local artist will present an exhibit of their work and offer free classes to the public. All classes meet in the Maker Space at the Downtown Library or virtually online. Don’t miss the array of disciplines and techniques on display. All materials will be provided and no special art skills are necessary. This class is part of Art for Everyone, a project supported in part by the Texas State Library And Archives Commission: TSLAC.
