Undercover Artists

Everyone has an artist lurking within. Undercover Artists is a series of art workshops — led by some of Norman’s finest artists — debuting in 2017 that celebrates the creativity of amateurs and practiced artists, alike. The workshops, inviting all skill levels and a variety of ages, are equal parts fun and informative, a collaborative community experience that will let that inner artist come to the forefront for a spell (or maybe unleash a new, long love affair).
