Paint Night⁠⁠
Tuesday, January 25 at 5pm-6pm (EST)

Ready to relieve some stress and create a new masterpiece for your wall? Join us on Tuesday, January 25th for Paint Night as we take some time to get in touch with our creative sides. A little bit about our host – Vicky Wang is an emerging artist whose work reflects her zest for life. Her visual art and paintings are expressed in elegant flowing lines and bold colors that capture things she finds fascinating, such as plants and faces. As a musician and singer-songwriter, she goes by the name “Earlybird” and shares honest songs about life in her soul-folk style, with her “pastel bell” voice secure and guitar in hand. In whatever art medium she is working in, she wishes to create beautiful, touching, and joyful moments that move the soul. To stay updated on her journey, you can follow her @theearlybirdsings.

Check out our materials list for items you may need to participate. These items can be bought at your closest dollar store, but if you’re not able to access them, not to worry!

Orientation Kits

The Continuing Education Students’ Association of X University has cancelled distribution of Orientation kits for the Winter term due to the pandemic. CESAX will hopefully be able to offer similar programming at the end of the Winter term and early Spring 2022 term.


The organizers strive to create inclusive and accessible spaces for all participants. If you require any accommodations to ensure your participation, please contact prior to the event.
