Art is for Everyone: Artist in Residence Series

Art is for Everyone

The Arlington Public Library is offering a free art series this spring. 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, and registration is not required to attend. 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).

Classes are free and are open to everyone, especially beginners. Online registration is not required, but classes are first-come, first served. We recommend arriving up to thirty minutes before class starts to sign up for a seat.

See all upcoming classes on our calendar.
