Virtual Tett Tuesday - A Creative Accountability Group

New to Kingston or looking to expand your creative circle? Take a break and come create!

On the second Tuesday of every month from 7 PM - 9 PM the Tett Centre for Creativity & Learning and community artists get together for an evening of creativity, conversation, and connection. Join our facilitator for a live Zoom session online, in the comfort of your own home. Our goal is to stay connected, encourage at-home art-making, 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 mentorship, we ask questions like: What inspires your art? How do I photograph my artwork? What supplies do you recommend? Where should I shop for materials? How do I apply for a show? Where can I showcase my artwork locally? Does anyone want to collaborate on a project? How do I develop a body of artwork? Can you recommend an upcoming art class?

Do you have questions? Join the group and get involved! 

All art mediums welcome. Painting, knitting, drawing, collage, printmaking, embroidery, jewellery, sculpture, digital editing, mixed media, you name it. Bring a project and enjoy an evening of creating and connecting with like-minded people.

FREE, Ages 18+. No registration required. All mediums & skill levels welcome.

Housekeeping Rules:

1. When you arrive, everyone's microphones will be muted. This is to avoid distraction from the sounds coming from everyone's homes. When you want to speak, please unmute yourself and talk. Just remember to put yourself back on mute again when you are done speaking.

 2. The person who is speaking appears to have a green frame around them when they are speaking. Please also say your name before speaking, so people know who it is.

3. If multiple people want to speak at the same time, please use the "hand up" function so that we can make sure to see that you would like to intervene.
