QUEERS, you are invited to an evening of watercolor painting, creativity, and queer community.
Facilitated by Rebekah Rose and Nico Ruta, and hosted by Plantiitas. This experience is created by queers, and for queers! No painting experience needed and beginners are encouraged to come. This gathering is about having fun, practicing, and playing in community.
