FREE!! All ages!

Come celebrate all the awesome art and fun we’ve made at Launch Pad these past 6.75 years by making some more art and fun! There’s no art on the wall but whatever we make tonight! We will be gelling the lights pretty colors and possibly (DEFINITELY!) busting out the disco ball!! Bring your creative self, dancing shoes, and a robust sense of humor to say goodbye to the gallery.

LIFE DRAWING!

We will have a live model available for a 1 hour life drawing session in the gallery, and open walls to display your creations, so bring drawing supplies, boards, and your creativity… gesture poses, studies, and likely two 15 minute sessions…..

SILK SCREENING!

Make your own LAUNCH PAD swag!
Bring in a T-SHIRT or fabric to emblazon with the Launch Pad logo to remember us by!
Printing done by Kevin Darras of the Darras Gallery.

We will also have a very limited number of T-shirts for sale, so you should come get them!.

 

OPEN WALLS!!

We will have paper, pushpins, index cards, markers, pencils and stuff like that for you make stuff with, as well a huge box of words from the WRITINGS ON THE WALL show. We are hoping that all our empty walls will be filled with a giant collaborative ART HAPPENING that you make here!
Bring stuff to tape, glue, pin and staple!

( Check out this video of the show in action! )

 

COMMUNITY ALTAR!!

The community altar from last month’s show will be up through the party for you to add to and change – bring something that reminds you of Launch Pad or something you experienced that relates to the gallery. Nothing you need back – nothing will be returned at the end of the night.
