Happy Hour Workshops

We will have an Art Making Activity Every 3rd Thursday From 5:30 to 8:00 pm, and additional events as announced.

Cost: $25.00 per person (typically)

Advance registration is required. Payment can no longer be made at the event and must be paid ahead of time through our online gallery shop.

Some events require an online registration form, some only require advance payment online.  Please read registration instructions for each event carefully.

You can make sure or ask any questions by emailing lyn@dairybarn.org.

We are branching out in the types of art making activities we can offer you for our monthly Happy Hour Workshops. Starting in October, we will be adding “glaze your own pottery” events to our line ups.  We will also be showcasing our brand new Fiber Arts Studio and be hosting Happy Hours that are fiber focused.

Winter Weather NOTE:

If the Athens City Schools are closed due to inclement weather on a workshop day, the workshop will be cancelled for safety.  We don’t want anyone driving on bad roads!  If a workshop you signed up for is cancelled, the Education Director will contact you about refunds or crediting your registration fee.


A Light In The Dark


January 18th

The Holidays are over and the long winter nights are taking hold.  Let’s let our imaginations create a light in the dark as we create these lovely lampposts in the snow.  Whether it makes you think of chilly night walks in the snow, or if you’re like me and have been checking every attic you have ever been in for a magic wardrobe, these paintings are sure to light up your night  inspire you to shine!

Advanced payment required.  Registration Deadline: January 12th.

(Online payment doubles as registration! You will be sent a confirmation email).
