FREE 2nd Saturday Art Lesson


In February’s FREE 2nd Saturday Art Lesson, learn how to draw and write in a similar style to Niki de Saint Phalle’s unique handwriting. Niki used to journal in artistic ways and created pieces of artwork based on what she wrote. We will use pieces from her Californian Diary series for inspiration in creating an original signature in her likeness. You can also view these pieces in our current exhibition, Niki de Saint Phalle: Mythical California.

Please note: due to the popularity of our 2nd Saturday art lessons, we now have two times available to participate. The first lesson will run in our Art Studio from 10am-11am, and the second lesson will run from 11am-12pm.

While this event is free, we strongly recommend you RSVP as we have limited seating. RSVP here:

For all art activities, we provide the materials — attendees just bring their creativity! All ages are welcome.
