Charlotte nonprofit Arts+ launches a new BYOB group art experience

DIY-lovers listen up: Arts+ has a new group art workshop called Gestalt.

It’s a new offering for the Charlotte nonprofit, which works to make arts education available to students of all ages and backgrounds.

How it works: Participants make individual pieces of art that assemble into a larger piece that reveals a cohesive image. It’s inspired by Gestalt theory, a school of thought which emphasizes that the whole of anything is greater than its parts.

  • Works can be created with paint, oil pastel or collage.
  • The final artwork can be displayed as a whole or dispersed as separate abstract works.

Details: Gestalt is $30 per person and BYOB-friendly.

  • Bookings for groups of up to 20 are now open and can be made by emailing [email protected].
  • Workshops are held at Arts+ Studio — 601 E. 5th St.
