Every month, Casita Brewing hosts a local nonprofit and helps them raise funds by offering their venue for a variety of activities. In June, Wilson Arts is the featured nonprofit.

In addition to the planned fundraising events, 25% of all taproom tips will be donated to Wilson Arts at the end of the month.

Following is a list of the events planned so far.  

JUNE 4: Wilson Arts will partner with The Painted Farmer to offer a fun and relaxing morning of yoga with goats in the beer garden at Casita Brewing from 10-11 a.m. This beginner-friendly, slow-paced class starts and ends with plenty of time for goat petting and pictures. For ages 13 and up. 

Minors must be accompanied by a participating adult. 

JUNE 8: Canvas Concoctions will engage the imagination through the joy of abstract painting. This experience, from 6-8 p.m., will offer the freedom to create a unique painted canvas. Prompt cards will get the process started, while Renee J. Moore encourages and guides participants in creating a one-of-a-kind abstract masterpiece. Preregistration is required. For ages 14 and up. Minors must be accompanied by a participating adult.

JUNE 11: Social Video Game Night with Rock Band 4 is from 7-10 p.m. Stop by and jump in on the fun — play the guitar, sing the vocals, play bass, and/or play the drums on Rock Band 4 at Casita. This event is open to the public and is free.

JUNE 13: Shaun Braswell leads Improv Night from 7-9 p.m. With an ensemble cast of fellow actors David Winstead, J.B. Yankosky and Maria Popowich, this group will be flexing their improv muscles as they take whatever is thrown at them by the emcee Seth Penwell. 

This event is free and open to everyone. There will be an audience participation portion as well. This event is free and open to the public.

JUNE 14: Join in for four rounds of fun arts-themed trivia hosted by Matthew Bain from 7-9 p.m. Maximum team size is six players. This event is open to the public and is free.

JUNE 15: If you have always wanted to learn the basics of painting with watercolor, this workshop, from 5:30-8:30 p.m., is for you. Join in the fun for an informative evening with instructor and master watercolor artist Pegi Sharp. Learn the best tools and techniques to get started on the journey to understand and enjoy watercolor. Preregistration is required. For ages 14 and up. Minors must be accompanied by a participating adult.

JUNE 18: Mark your calendars, warm up your “pipes” and make plans to join attend Wilson Arts Battle Karaoke from 7-10 p.m. Sign up starts at 6. Young and old will face off and give it their all in this fun, family-friendly karaoke event. More information on this event will be posted in coming weeks at www.wilsonarts.com/casita.

JUNE 22 and 29: Local artist and arts instructor Renee J. Moore is back with a two-night textural workshop for beginners. Class is 6-8 p.m. In the first Wednesday session, participants will share a few Zen moments making beads and other small tokens while experimenting with imprinting different textures. Choose glaze colors and Moore will bring back the finished pieces for the next session. 

In part two, participants will see glazed pieces then learn to assemble the jewelry or mobile to complete their finished piece. Moore will take the pieces home for a final firing, and participants will be notified by email when their masterpieces are ready to be picked up at Wilson Arts. No experience with clay is necessary. 

Preregistration is required. For ages 14 and up. Minors must be accompanied by a participating adult.

JUNE 25: Hang out with the cast of “The Sound of Music” and sing popular Broadway songs together from 7-10 p.m. This event is free and open to the public.
