SHOP CLASS: It's about how

Join us for our SHOP CLASS Summer Sprint – a three-session mashup innovative thinkers, innovative doers and curious bystanders. SHOP CLASS showcases Richmond’s creative best and pushes new thinking by blurring the lines between creator and creative minded.

Organized and hosted by Lauren Boynton, Peter Fraser, Caroline Moyer, Ansel Olson, John Sarvay and Lauren Stewart, each SHOP CLASS session is a two-hour, hands-on discovery zone centered in the historic Marvin Lang Building on West Broad Street. (The RVA Graphic Project will be held at Studio 23!)

Classes are free to attend, but space is limited and advance registration is required. Classes begin promptly at 6 pm. (Refreshments are available at 5:30 to meet your need for human social interaction.)

8.13.14 – Session 2
SHOP CLASS: The RVA Graphic Project
featuring Carrie Walters and Studio Two Three

What happens when we invite a local graphic artist to create a slew of random images that represent Richmond – and then unleash you and 39 other random people to create your own RVA t-shirts? Madness, right? Graphic designer Carrie Walters is squirreled away in her design closet RIGHT NOW selecting icons and creating images! We’ll unveil them at this special SHOP CLASS at Studio Two Three, along with a tutorial on screen printing. Bring a shirt!

8.26.14 – Session 3
featuring Patience Salgado and Noah Scalin

We’re bringing two of RVA’s creative forces together for an evening of art and emotion. Noah, best known for his Skull-a-Day project, and Patience, whose Light of Human Kindness project took the 2013 RVA Street Art Festival by storm, will bring their talents together to compel a rag-tag group of Richmonders (you and 39 other random people) to new heights of creativity and compassion!
