May 11th • 5:00 pm - 9:30 pm • Boys & Girls Club of Stanton

Mark your calendars for our first Artist Lodge event of the year!

We’ll have 40 or more vendors selling a wide variety of art and products. We will also have a gallery artists showcasing their love for the incredibly talented Studio Ghibli production company. Refreshments will be available while supplies last.

Artist Eva Lacy of Critterosity will be teaching a painting Studio Ghibli themed workshop at the event starting at 6pm. Tickets are $6 and include your basic materials (paint, brushes, paper). Seats are limited to 25 participants, so make sure you purchase your ticket early! The classroom is located off of the gallery room. Participants must be seven years of age and older, those under twelve years of age will need an adult supervisor with them (supervisors do not need tickets, but will not receive painting materials). Please bring any extra materials that you’d like to use on your piece.

Workshop tickets available here:

The talented Dancakes artist Jennified Art will be our guest artist for the evening and will be doing live pancake art in the vendor room! She may be taking requests, so make sure you stop by early to see her in action!

We will have a cosplay life drawing session starting at 7pm in the classroom off of the vendor room. Canon Cosplay (Shannon Blair) will be our cosplay model for the evening. Please bring your sketchbook, any art supplies you need, as well as cash to tip the model. The session will consist of four five-minute drawing sessions, one ten minute session, and one twenty minute session.

As with all past Artist Lodge events, parking and admission are absolutely FREE.

Live music will be provided by the 8-Bit Jazz Heroes in the vendor room. They will have albums available for purchase. Please bring cash if you’re interested in purchasing an album.

We will also have a silent raffle happening that evening. All artwork has been donated by current or previous artists and creators. Tickets are $1 a piece, and all proceeds will go back into The Artist Lodge to make our events bigger and better. The raffle will be called at 8pm. You must be present to win.

Participate in the event-wide scavenger hunt by visiting each vendor and the gallery and receiving a sticker. Those who completely fill their scavenger sheets will be put into drawing for one of three goody bags! One goody bag will include a $10 gift card to Blick Art Materials.
