Brick City Center in Ocala Offers Free Workshops

The Marion Cultural Alliance (MCA) Second Saturday Art Studio at the Brick will be held from noon to 3 p.m., September 11. This monthly workshop of arts and crafts making and fun play is an open studio/workshop where artists of all levels and ages are invited to create.


Inspired by #352Creates, a local movement that promotes the idea that creativity connects us and can engage and promote healthy communities, activities are set up to help guide emerging artists create their own masterpiece. Professional artists are invited to use the gallery as studio space to convene and create among other creatives. An adjacent courtyard is available for plein-air sessions. BYO art supplies.


Brick City Center for the Arts is home to Marion Cultural Alliance, established in 2001 to champion, convene and create opportunities for artists and arts organizations. In addition to regular gallery hours, the first Friday of the month hosts opening receptions of new exhibits and meet the artists at 5 p.m. The Brick Gallery Shop provides a selection of items for the home or for gift giving.


Admission is free. Location: 23 SW Broadway St., Ocala. For more information, call 352-369-1500.
