Love the look of colorful origami? Then join us at our August DIY Downtown Art Class at the gorgeous Julia Ideson Library! In this beginner friendly workshop, everyone will learn how to read the dots and lines of origami patterns and learn how to fold cranes, dragons, and lots of wonderful creations! Then you can choose to make more patterns or find one pattern that you love and make them into a hanging Origami Sculpture!

You will get to keep all your cool origami pieces! This technique is antique and also fresh, cool, and modern.

21+ up. Light sips and bites included.

Pop Shop America art classes are a super fun way to spend a week night. We play great music, nosh on small bites, enjoy light sips, and socialize while we craft!

We take care of all the supplies you need and you get to keep your work! You will walk away with professional quality design goods. You don’t need to be an experienced crafter to join us – we choose supplies that will lead to professional results.


The Downtown District was formed in 1995 for the purpose of revitalizing the urban core of the country’s fourth largest city. Over the past decade, the Downtown District has used a combination of public funds and private resources to catalyze area improvements focusing on the city blocks bordered by Interstate 10, Highway 59 and Interstate 45.

The Downtown District operates under the leadership of a 30-person board of directors who oversee the implementation of the District’s strategic initiatives. Funding for the Downtown District comes from a special assessment on all downtown property owners.

Thanks to the generous support from the Downtown District & the delicious bites by Local Foods Downtown & Phoenicia.
