The Artists LOFT


Meet new people and experience a different art project and adventure!

No artistic experience is necessary, this is a judgment-free zone. Materials will be provided.


The Artists LOFT is facilitated by The LOFT's Creatives Rebuild New York Artist-In-Residence Sphynxx and will feature a monthly art night at The LOFT on the 3rd Mondays from 6:30pm-8:30pm. The group will also host a monthly art-related outing. Dates and times for these will vary from month to month.

The Artists LOFT is free to participate in, but donations are always welcome! Costs associated with the monthly art outings will be the responsibility of each attendee.

February Artists LOFT Activity:

Poetic Clay Art With Obsidian Voices 

 

Celebrating Black History Month Artists LOFT will have the following changes 

Please see details below 

 

Mold your emotions into clay. Unleash the sculptor within as you respond to the spoken word through the tactile language of clay. Whether it's a whimsical figure dancing to a playful rhyme or a textured vessel echoing the depths of a moving verse, let your heart guide your hands. This is a safe space for exploration, not perfection. We welcome beginners and seasoned artists alike to delve into the liberating world of self-expression through clay.
