Art of Cooking – September 14, 2017
CU Denver Students went to Cook Street School of Culinary Arts to cook some delicious Southeast Asian Street Food. We had a blast making spring rolls, chicken curry skewers, and crispy fried bananas!
The chefs were amazing and taught us wrapping skills, knife skills, and of course tasting! We can’t wait until next semester’s Art of Cooking, so if you missed out this time, we hope you’ll join us in the Spring!
Art of Costuming – October 3, 2017
Students learned from local costume & prop industry entrepreneurs about the intricacies of cosplay and where to begin. What’s more? R2D2 & BB8 came to visit!

This year’s Masterpieces & Milkshakes was all decked out for the Hindu festival of lights, Diwali! Students enjoyed mango lassis and chai lattes while working on some truly festive elephant masterpieces.
Thanks to Little India for providing the beverages, and to Pinot’s Palette for the helpful instruction. We can’t wait until the next one!
Theatre Nights: Rent – November 14 & 15, 2017
