2022 Sip and Create

Flaco’s and Deeproots Arts and Creative Services Fundraiser for BLAAC
September 16, 2022 at 6pm

The “Sip and Create” event was a great success. Everyone walked in with a blank canvas and left with a vividly artistic interpretation of the Mayan woman. The “Sip and Create” event made it possible for people to express themselves through the tip of their paint brushes and create a representation of the ideas that flow through their minds. Not only was this a space for creative minds to illustrate their creativity, but the environment also created a warm and caring atmosphere for our participants to interact with one another and strive socially. BUT WAIT…THERE’S MORE! The turnout of the event was so extensive that we plan to host another “Sip and Create” on October 7th from 6-8:30 pm at the same location. Mark your calendars, folks! Can’t wait to see you at the next one! Here are a few photos from our last event:
