Students and residents from the Chicagoland area came to the ARTica Studio below Norris for an event called PARTica on Friday night. The free event consisted of many activities, such as a Sketch Off contest, Color Me Crayola selfies and beading.

The event also included food such as ice cream sundaes that catered to both the college students as well as younger children. One of the activities, the Sketch Off contest, awarded gift cards to Blaze Pizza to the winners.

ARTica Studio hosts about three to four events every quarter. The next planned event is Empty Bowls on April 17, where people are invited to mold a clay bowl in the art studio.
