New Philly Creative Project Space- Pterodactyl

The fine folks who brought us the Big Art Show have started a new initiative called Pterodactyl, which looks pretty awesome. Their mission is to “revive the enjoyment and practice of creating art for personal fulfillment, to create exhibitions and experiences that resonate meaningfully with diverse audiences, and to bring people together through the arts.” Check out their website for more information about three interesting classes they’ll be offering starting this June- “Sequence/Structure/Juxtaposition: The Photographic Slideshow,” “Introduction to Screen Printing,” and Back to Basics: Simple Sewing for Everyday Life.”
