Are you an artist who is interested in science? Or are you a scientist who enjoys art? Or are you somewhere in between?

This workshop is for all levels of artists (and scientists!), from beginner to pro.

Slots are $30 and lasts 15 minutes each. Cost includes instruction and materials. You will create one 6 x 6 inch painting during your 15 minute slot. These paintings make great gifts!
