Who says adult nights out have to be dull?
Indulge in a relaxed night of spirited creation at the museum! Led by artist and guest instructor Nick Hobbs, we’ll enjoy an evening of guided artmaking paired with drinks and light appetizers. This month, we’re exploring how self-imposed boundaries can spark creativity. Come learn how to turn a simple photograph into artistic inspiration, whether by reproducing it faithfully or turning it into a lens for your own unique creation. Bring a friend and explore your creative side as we learn, unwind, and just plain have fun.
No prior experience in art is necessary to be part of this program—we welcome guests of all experience levels. All materials are provided, along with light appetizers and one glass of beer or wine. See you there!
Tickets are $30 ($27 for members), reserve your spot online or by calling Guest Services at (479) 657-2335 today.
Nick Hobbs lives and works in Fayetteville, Arkansas, where he is an MFA candidate at the University of Arkansas. He received his BFA from Louisiana Tech University and studied in the academic tradition of figurative drawing at the New York Academy of Art in 2018. He has shown across the South, Midwest, and Northeast, and his work was recently collected by McNeese State University in Lake Charles, Louisiana. His first large solo show will be hosted by the Art & Science Center in Pine Bluff, Arkansas, in November 2022. His current practice is defined by small, highly detailed graphite drawings that interweave the everyday and the sublime in curated juxtapositions.
