The program will be led by local artist and HAC Program Coordinator Brenda Beck Fisher and hosted at the Hannibal Arts Council, 105 South Main Street. Cost is $35 for the general public and $25 for HAC members and employees of Hannibal Regional Healthcare System.

Arty Party programs are designed for those simply looking to have a good time with good company while creating art. An Arty Party is not a serious art lesson, but intended to give participants a relaxing, fun evening and a quality art project to take home.

No prior painting experience is required to participate. Arty Party programs are open to those 18 and up. HAC provides all art supplies, plates, cups and napkins. Participants may bring beverages and snacks. Registration is required by contacting HAC at 573-221-6545 or reservations@hannibalarts.com .
