Artsy activities

State of the Art Studio
Paint like Bob Ross or give wheel throwing a spin. Part gallery, part pottery studio — this is the spot to get creative.

Plant and sip. Make your own terrariums, wreaths, and centerpieces… while sipping on something scrumptious.

NoMa Warehouse
There’s always something happening here. Learn portraiture or make clay face masks. Follow its Instagram to keep on the up-and-up.

Columbia Art Center
Take specialty classes in skills like jewelry making and needle felting. Heads up: most of the classes last six weeks unless noted otherwise.

Allstar athletics
