you + creativity + cocktails
no experience necessary

make. is a series of fun creative workshops led by professional artists that combine artmaking and great company! Featuring a different artistic form at each workshop, make. includes professional instruction, materials, great music, fun, adult beverages, and a personal work of art you create and take home at the end of the night.

All proceeds from make. workshops directly support PlatteForum's programs for artists and underserved youth, so you can feel good about learning a new art form and enjoying a glass of wine while supporting a great cause!

About PlatteForum

PlatteForum is an award-winning, unique community arts center, artist-in-residence program, and youth development program that matches underserved youth with master artists in intensive, structured, and long-term creative learning environments. Our work is grounded in a belief that the creative process nurtures discovery, self-expression, development and growth, and each program is built upon the interconnection of the creative process and three vital elements: youth, artists, and community. PlatteForum supports the professional lives of artists through a curated, internationally competitive residency in which each resident is provided the time, space, and support to pursue and exhibit their work while closely collaborating with youth. The artist-youth relationship is a special opportunity for both in which residents experience unique inspiration from working side by side with youth, and youth gain a deep understanding of the artist's process and method. Through PlatteForum's programs that engage, educate, and enrich both youth and adults in our community, artists take their work to the next level, youth gain a sense of pride by learning what they can accomplish, and community grows richer from the expansion of the arts and contribution of youth as they build productive lives.

PlatteForum is the proud recipient of the 2011 National Arts and Humanities Youth Program Award and the 2006 Mayor's Award for Excellence in the Arts
