Whether you fancy yourself an artist or have two left thumbs when it comes to creative production, you can try something new alongside some of the Bay Area’s most talented emerging artists. Join six exhibiting artists in The San Francisco Foundation & SOMArts Annual Murphy and Cadogan Contemporary Art Awards Exhibition for a free-to-attend afternoon of artist-led creative workshops with snacks courtesy of La Cocina Culinary Incubator from 1–4pm on Saturday, August 18.
Regardless of your skill level, the only prerequisite is that you bring a sense of adventure—you’ll find out your two workshop assignments when you arrive. We’ll try to honor at least one of your preferences.
WORKSHOP DESCRIPTIONS TO BE ANNOUNCED. Check back soon for more details!
Here’s how it works:
Step 1 (right now!): Register on Eventbrite. Make yourself a note to arrive by 1pm on the day of the event to be guaranteed a schedule.
Step 2 (by 1pm): Check-in to the SOMArts lobby to receive your two workshop assignments, chosen at random. If your workshops don’t appeal to you, do what you were never allowed to do in school: grab a drink & swap schedules socially with other students before the bell rings. Also, spend some time with the art in the gallery!
Step 3: Get creative! Try your hand at the creative processes of some of the Bay Area’s most promising emerging artists.
