Tett Tuesday - A Creative Accountability Group

Next Session: December 14, 7–9PM

 

New format: hybrid in-person + virtual Tett Tuesday!

Are you feeling the effects of screen exhaustion and are eager to connect with others in person? Alternatively, do you feel most comfortable connecting from home? In either case, we've got you covered! This upcoming Tett Tuesday on November 9th, we're going to host a hybrid in-person and virtual session, co-facilitated by our Interim Programming and Communication Coordinator, Nicole Daniels, and Tett Tuesday creator Danielle Folkerts.

 

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 or in person. 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 is required for the in-person sessions, but not required for the virtual sessions.
