"I Love My Hair" Workshop

Wednesday February 17th   2:00pm-5:00pm

Celebrate “Black Excellence” by creating a 3D work of art of YOU and your beautiful hair. (No experience required)

Self love is extremely important to embed in the black community.

Many black men and women face the challenge of discovering self love and society has a history of feeding us the lie that our hair isn’t “good enough”, and is even discriminated against in schools and work zones.

We want to crush this notion in any capacity that we can.

That is why we are inviting you to create an impactful masterpiece of YOU and YOUR beautiful, unique and natural hair.

Because self love is truly the best love.

This event is a part of our “Black Excellence & Black History” Month.

Once you purchase your ticket, send us a selfie so our artist can create a sketch of yourself to paint.
