Art Lab Events


Art Lab 123 is reaching out with postcards and tent cards!

When you attend an Art Lab event, you can get a postcard featuring one of these images.

Postcards highlight different projects of the Art Lab.

They also feature important figures that make Art Lab possible!

Image created by Dennis Jose, this is the first of many tent cards to come to send to friends and family for any occasion.


Come to our next event and pick up some free buttons!

Earth Day "Arty Party," April 21, 2013

 Here's what is happening inside while others are working away outside in the Urban Garden for the "Garden Party."

Art on every wall viewable--here is Megan Besmirched's artwork that Dennis Jose is pointing out.

 Artist Delores Rix and her husband, Erwin, on the left, with artist Steven Coenen, with a nice backdrop of Delores' watercolors and Mimi Clayton's photographs.

Brook Woolf is the Showcase Artist of the "Arty Party" and she graced us with her ukulele tunes.

After that, it was time for meditation, and there is one of her paintings in the background, based on chakra poses.

Artist Nia Garcia shares her work with Steering Committee member Janice Bond and friends.

Everyone got free buttons displaying a few of Dennis Jose's paintings, and raffle tickets for the chance to win fun prizes throughout the day!

Here is Dennis showing off the prizes for the raffle.

Winners of all ages!
