HeatSync Labs
Creative Catalysts, an initiative of Mesa Arts Center, is a relatively new organization with the belief that creative awareness and artistic expression is essential to the growth of a city. Over the past year, it has spotlighted everything from small backyard art openings to large exhibitions at the Mesa Arts Center. From 6 to 9 p.m. on Wednesday, June 29, esteemed artist Kyllan Maney will host a single-day workshop on silk screening, shrinky dinks, and T-shirts at Mesa's HeatSync Labs, 140 West Main Street. It's a fairly mellow BYOB event with snacks provided, and you'll get to walk away with an original piece of your own creation. View the Facebook event, or e-mail [email protected] with any questions.

TechShop Chandler
The TechShop Chandler at 249 East Chicago Street offers a wide array of classes for the more industrial-minded artist. With courses in textiles, laser cutting, fabrication, blacksmithing, and welding (to name just a few), the programs appeal to those interested in anything from computer art to large 3D design. Since most of us don't have any of this equipment in our own homes, a monthly membership is available so that you can continue to use their professional facilities after you've completed the courses. See the complete course schedule at TechShop's website.
