    Adults are invited to get creative and make a no-pressure, awful piece of art. All supplies will be provided. We will put out random art supplies; what you make is entirely up to you! Make it as bizarre and ridiculous as you wish. At the end of the night, you will get to judge your fellow artists’ work and decide which is the worst!
