Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?

the class is intended for adults and as an adult class on art and poetry, there may be adult subject matter. This is not uncommon in the arts, while not expected to be of a crude and/or lascivious nature, it may occur.


What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?

There is parking on Trade Street with meters, a close parking deck, as well as a free lot off of Cherry Street behind the Benton Convention Center.


Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?
