    Whether your creativity spans the Mona Lisa or Lisa Frank, summer is the perfect time to get hands-on and make something new. 

    1. Design your next gig poster.

    Even if you don’t have a band—or your band is still playing in your mom’s basement—Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator pop-ups at Cottonwood Center will help you create your next poster art.

    2. Take a hand-lettering workshop. 

    Handmade cards aren’t just for kids anymore. Snag a spot at one of these one-day workshops at Ladyfingers Letterpress, and learn to hand-letter your favorite quote or birthday card.
