Since its inception in February 2022, our monthly CityScape Date Night series has been a creative journey like no other. Every month, we’ve delved into a diverse range of artistic mediums, from acrylics to watercolors, upcycling to drag life drawing.  

Date Nights are open to pairs of all kinds – friends, family members, partners, siblings, and more. It’s an enchanting evening designed to be shared with a special someone or even for a memorable first date. Of course, it’s perfectly splendid as a solo date night as well. We warmly welcome individuals to join us and unleash their creativity. Plus, we ensure all the necessary supplies are at your fingertips, and a complimentary drink awaits to enhance the experience. Join us in bringing your imagination to life! 


Cityscape Date Nights: Create your own Poetic Theatre or Memory Box

“…be transported into a world of dream-like world of unexpected juxtapositions.”

What to Expect: Participants will lean into Joseph Cornell’s unique artistic style, learning how he incorporated found objects and mixed media into his work. Guided by expert facilitators, they will select a meaningful memory or story to incorporate in their memory box, translate it into a visual concept, and plan the layout, design, and materials. 

Workshop Activities: Participants will select and conceptualize a meaningful memory for their memory box, then get hands-on with crafting and experiment with mixed media techniques to bring their creation to life.

Who Should Attend: This workshop welcomes anyone interested in crafting a personal memory box and exploring the world of mixed media art. No prior artistic experience is required—all skill levels are welcome to join in the creative journey.
