Art & Boba Talks

Art and Boba Talks are informal chats meant to be a welcoming space for students to engage with practicing arts professionals to learn more about working in the arts, what an art practice looks like, and to ask any questions you might have in your journey as an aspiring arts professional! We also welcome any folks who simply love art and want to join for a casual conversation over boba, no arts background required. Boba will be limited to the first 25 attendees.
