10 Ways to Up Your Arts I.Q. in Metro Phoenix

You don't have to be an art expert to enjoy art. But every now and then, it's nice to give the neurons a nice workout while learning a bit more about all things visual arts -- so we've assembled a list of ways you can learn more about everything from local artists and their work to becoming a successful arts entrepreneur.

Some are designed for artists, and some for art lovers. We've even found a little something for arts educators. Some happen as soon as the first week in February, so make friends with our round-up right away if you're up for a little boost in the arts I.Q. department. Check details before you go, since some of these events require registration and payment.
