BROWNBAG ART WORKSHOP SERIES FALL 2018

The University of Toledo Department of Art sponsors a series of lunchtime art workshops. Recommended for UT employees and students, as parking may be an issue for non-UT folks. The Brownbag Lunchtime Art Workshops are for adults and will be held on UT's main campus in Sullivan Hall (Room 2010), AND on the Health Science Campus in the Collier building (Room 3406/08). Each workshop is comprised of two 45-minute sessions (12-12:45 p.m.). The cost is $30 per workshop and all materials are included. The topics and schedule for each campus is below. The pictures below are examples of the type of project described. The actual designs will likely vary based on the interests of the participants.
