This workshop is on Friday, September 8, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. and registration is $25. Photos of featured paintings for the fall are available on Cornerstone Center for the Arts’ Facebook page.
Monthly Dance Club is a monthly social dance event at Cornerstone Center for the Arts. Each event begins with an hour of dance instruction in swing, ballroom, salsa, or tango dancing led by instructor David Fennig followed by open dancing. The event is a great way to spend a Saturday evening with friends while showing off already existing dance skills or learning a new dance form. The next Monthly Dance Club is September 9 at 7 p.m. and is $12 per person or $7 for students, no pre-registration is necessary for this event.

Bad Art Night will be at Maring-Hunt Library on Thursday, September 21 at 6 p.m. This collaboration between Cornerstone and Muncie Public Library encourages attendees to raid through a collection of arts and crafts supplies to make art with very low expectations. Guests are awarded for their tacky, terrible, and creepy art with various prizes. The event is open to ages 18 and up and is free to attend with a suggested $5 donation to help with costs.
Coffee & Paints is returning on Saturday, September 23 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. and is open to students in the 4th grade through adults.
