On Saturday, we’ll also be hosting artist Maria De Los Angeles for a free, guided artmaking activity. Maria will be the studios from 1 to 4 p.m. helping guests create banners and flags representing their personal identities. Come create fabric collages, paint, and embellish your own banner to capture who you are through artmaking. Artist Junli Song will also be hosting a free printmaking activity just outside the studios on Walker Landing.

We hope to see you there!

Free, no tickets required. Drop in anytime Saturday, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., or Sunday, 1 to 4 p.m.
