ATTN STUDENTS: SIGN UP FOR ARTFUL THURSDAYS AT THE ARBORETUM!
The Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden is hosting a summer events series, "Artful Thursdays", as a part of it's "Celebrate the Children" exhibit with sculptor Gary Lee Price.
The Arboretum is interested in having two students or professional artists demonstrating their craft in the garden on each of these Thursdays, 10am to 1pm. These demos are an opportunity for guests at the Arboretum to see a working artist execute their work and learn about the process of visual arts such as, but not limited to, drawing, painting or sculpting. These demos are not for make-and-take crafts.
While this is not a paid opportunity, the Arboretum is providing 10 tickets to participating artists, good for one year.

NOTES ON THE NEW WEBSITE
As you can tell, we look a bit different! We’ve updated our website and class registration system. As with any change, some things will be different but we hope to make this transition as smooth as possible.
CLASS & WORKSHOP REGISTRATION
All class and workshop registration will be handled through Shopify’s portal. This system allows us to make swift changes and quick adjustments as necessary.
