A new members-only club for creative artists called Independent Art House is set to launch June 7. McKinney resident Todd “Hutch” Hutchinson has partnered with Filtered coffee shop in downtown McKinney to host the club inside Filtered, located at 218 E. Louisiana St., McKinney. While the coffee shop is open to the public, the Independent Art House will host daily creative workshops for its members. The goal is to provide a place for all creative types, such as actors, writers, singers, painters, sculptors, songwriters and filmmakers, to build a network and grow in their craft, Hutchinson said.

“You can come, hang out and work on any creative projects or participate in the workshops,” he said. “We believe the arts can become an exhilarating and adhesive glue that builds the community and brings them back together.”
