Art Night

What are Art Nights?

Each month Washington City’s Arts Ministry hosts a virtual Art Night via Zoom. They are hour-long evening artmaking sessions with Community Arts Minister, Jessie Houff, or other guest artists. They are via Zoom and virtual only. Each month, participants are led in a variety of simple art projects you can do from home using things you have lying around the house. See information below for our next Art Night!
