    6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Join us in the studio for POUR PAINTING, Tuesday, May 28th@6:30pm to support a special non-profit with a public event!

A Different Kind of Lifeguard is a nonprofit based in Sioux Falls that was created to eliminate the stigma surrounding mental illness, self-injury, and suicide. Through their program, Blowing the Whistle on Mental Illness, Self-Injury, and Suicide, A Different Kind of Lifeguard educates young people about the signs and symptoms of mental illness and what to do if they recognize these symptoms in themselves or others. With awareness campaigns like I WILL NOT GIVE UP and REAL, NOT WEAK, A Different Kind of Lifeguard has inspired thousands around the world to not give up on themselves and others.

May is Mental Health Month and ADKOL believes that mental health is important for all people, whether or not they have a mental illness. Art is an amazing coping skill for all people to learn to manage stress. We are excited to join together to create individual pieces of art that each reflect our own personalities with this fun pour painting class at Creative Spirits!
