Adult Arts & Crafts Night

Take it back to summer camp— only better, because there’s wine—at the CRAFT & FOLK ART MUSEUM. Every first Thursday of the month, the Miracle Mile institution hosts an evening of creativity in the courtyard that draws first-daters as well as seasoned artists ($8; members, free). Try out a new technique (piñata making, felting), often guided by a local institution; one class had crafters painting on velvet with the help of Velveteria, L.A.’s museum of black velvet art.
