Paintbrush & Pen

Paintbrush & Pen | Thursday Youth Series

Metro Inclusive Health is hosting a new themed discussion series for LGBTQ+ and allied youth ages 13-17 in Tampa Bay.

For December’s theme, Paintbrush & Pen, we’re offering an in-person art series focused on poetry and painting. On Dec. 2nd, join acclaimed local artist John Gascot for a self-portrait painting night. Then, on Dec. 9th, we’ll explore poetry with Charles Hines, Assoc. Creative Director of The Blunt Space. Finally, on Dec. 16th, we will host a gallery day to display art work and share poems.

The series will be hosted at the METRO St. Pete Grand Hall. Masks required while indoors.
