Join in for an evening of art-making as artist Lauri Garcia Jones guides guests through a peculiar portrait process relating to the exhibition Dreamland | Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas.

Lauri Garcia Jones (aka Loot Achris) is a visual artist born and raised in San Antonio, TX. Working primarily in illustration, painting, installation, and photography, Jones’ work draws influence from the vivid color palettes and graphic styles of cartoons and graffiti. Jones uses satire throughout her work to provide an opportunity for serious, and sometimes taboo, issues to be made approachable and relatable.
