About the Artists: 

Karli’s been spending her time in bars (for fun and for money) since 2013, asking questions and trying everything she can with a complete disregard for her own safety. She graduated from Iowa State University with a BFA in 2016 at which time she knew she was definitely going to make her living imbibing others. After time in beer halls, venues, and cruddy breweries, she somehow talked the idiot savants at Proof into letting her join their team in 2017. Since then, she’s been aggressively consuming all the knowledge (and liquor) she can get her hands on, buying/borrowing/stealing every cocktail book she comes across.

Lilah Anderson, Adult Education Coordinator at Greater Des Moines Botanical Garden, will join Karli in teaching this class.
