All participants must be 21 and over. Two classes (5p-6p and 6p-7p). Space is limited. First Come First Serve.

Making Beautiful Letters (Additional Cost)

Led by Matthew Hoffman, curator of the You Are Beautiful project, Will Miller of Firebelly Design and Erin Borreson of the STA & Freight, this workshop will guide participants through a collaborative typographic exploration of creating letterforms for the statement, You Are Beautiful. Participants will choose a letter to create with provided materials/found objects and inspiration. Feel free to bring found objects to share. The group will be encouraged to work together to think about the statement and typography in a different way.

CONCERT (Included in Ticket Price)

Then enjoy an incredible live music performance by the talented Rebecca Loebe starting at 7pm in the Greenhouse Loft.

Award winning singer/songwriter Rebecca Loebe is both candid and self-deprecating, attributes that shine through in her songwriting and laugh-out-loud storytelling. Since quitting her job as a full-time recording studio engineer, she has performed an average of 150 shows per year in listening rooms, festivals and theaters in over 30 states of the US and in Europe. Last spring she took a break from the road to appear as a contestant on Season 1 of NBC’s “The Voice,” with a performance of Nirvana’s ‘Come As You Are’ that inspired Christina Aguilera and Adam Levine to offer her mentorship and charted on iTunes worldwide. An Atlanta native, Loebe now makes her home in Austin. She is touring nationally to support her 3rd full length release CIRCUS HEART, an album that mixes intimate folk with jubilant pop and has received rave reviews from all over the world.
