Night School is a class series based around themes. In each class of the Night School series, artist instructors will explore and illuminate the class theme with brief lectures, fast projects and exciting assignments.
A special Night School session that is not at Kala, but out in the town to visit, discuss, and experience art in their native environments. In this session we will cover museums, galleries, studios in San Francisco and the East Bay. Hold on to your hat and get your pen and pencil ready, it is going to be a wild and fun ride.
