Minneapolis and St. Paul are home to world-class museums, a plethora of theaters, countless local artisans, and two full cities’ worth of breathtaking architecture. To say that the Twin Cities are a mecca for art lovers would be an understatement. One art form that is gaining popularity across our state is the creation of craft beer with its multilayered flavors and rich colors. For the second Arts & Ales event series, we are proud to be partnering with Indeed Brewing Company and Minneapolis Community Education to pair together two “crafts” for several different art classes on Tuesdays throughout the fall season.
Each evening will begin at Indeed Brewing Company which is located in the Solar Arts Building in N.E. Minneapolis. Here, your GetKnit Gurus will be awaiting your arrival and get you checked in for our creative night of fun and crafts. After ordering up one of Indeed’s artfully delicious beers, we will all gather on their patio and enjoy a meal from Gastrotruck, a local food truck that concocts inspiring combinations of flavors in everything they serve. After we eat and drink our fill, we will be ready to learn a new craft and produce our very own take-home masterpiece during a 3-hour art class which includes instruction and supplies.
Each event date, we will feature a different art-themed class from the wide array of classes that Minneapolis Community Education features throughout the year. Join us for one or all of these opportunities to tap into your creative side and release your inner artist.
Tuesday, October 14th: Charcoal Drawing
We’ll explore some basic and advanced techniques of charcoal drawing. Next, you will recreate a meaningful picture that you have brought with you by utilizing your new found skills in this unique art medium.
Tuesday, November 11th: Mosaics
We’ll experiment with design and composition as we learn fundamental mosaic artistry. As part of this class, you will create your very own 8″ x 11″ mosaic wall hanging to display in your home.
Tuesday, December 9th: Wreath Making
Just in time for the holidays, we’ll create our very own wreaths using yarn and other festive decorations. Once you’re done, you can take your creation with you and proudly “deck your halls” for the holidays.
