Sip and Paint
Apr
12
7:00 PM19:00

Sip and Paint

Hosted by RISE: Healthy for Life

Learn how to do acrylic pours on April 12 and support responsible, inclusive sexuality education at the same time!

Your results will be organic, colorful, abstract, and reminiscent of some of the most striking elements in nature. Best of all, it's easy and fun and you cant really mess it up! This is fun ... and sloppy! Please wear clothes you don't mind getting paint on. Or an apron. Or both!

Snacks and drinks (including wine, seltzer, and juice) provided.

There are a few breaks needed in the pour process, so staff from RISE: Healthy for Life will be on hand to lead icebreakers and some games from the various levels of the Our Whole Lives comprehensive sexuality education curriculum, which covers kindergarten through older adult.

Remember to get your ticket at the link below. You don't have a reservation until you do--we have to buy supplies, food, and drinks, so please help us plan ahead! (And you know you want to come!!!)
