Tett Tuesday - A Creative Accountability Group

Next Session: January 11, 7–9PM

  

What is Tett Tuesday?

New to Kingston and/or looking to expand your creative circle? Join us for Tett Tuesdays! On the second Tuesday of every month from 7—9 PM, the Tett Centre for Creativity & Learning and community artists get together for an evening of creativity, conversation, and connection. Our goal is to stay connected, encourage artmaking, build relationships, share skills and resources, and to promote wellness through the arts.

We invite you to grab an art or craft project and participate online. Share what you have been working on, see what others are creating, watch live demonstrations, and participate in a variety of art-focused group discussions. 

Through peer-to-peer mentorship, we explore questions like: What inspires your art? How do I photograph my artwork? What supplies + shops do you recommend? Where can I showcase my artwork locally? Does anyone want to collaborate on a project? Get involved and share your questions and/or expertise!

This program is FREE, Ages 18+, all mediums & skill levels welcome.

Registration not required.
