The Undergraduate Art Association (UAA) is hosting open studios every Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. in Hanes Art Center. All supplies will be free, and all skill levels are welcome.
“The ultimate goal of the open studio is to provide a stress-free environment for the students to experiment in art,” said Lily Cui, president of the UAA. “We hope that these events help people develop confidence through artistic expression, and ultimately guide the community to value art and creativity as much as we do.”
The UAA is UNC’s only art club for undergraduates. Their mission is to bring together artists on campus and to enhance the impact of visual arts in the UNC community.
“The UAA is an open, free organization to all students that aims to support and develop undergraduate visual artists at UNC regardless of their enrollment in art classes,” Cui said.
She said that rigorous academics and coursework keeps people from having the time to express their artistic side.
