Program Description

Event Details

Calling all young artists and creative teens!  Join us for a  week long workshop  for teens outside at the East Side Library.  Each day we will hear from a local artist or creator, get inspired by their work, and then use our supply tent to get creative and expand on your own work while getting professional advice from an artist. Monday-Thursday will feature a different artist, and then Friday use the day to wrap up any projects and get your space ready to showcase your work.

On Friday, June 25th we will come together at our East Side Community Art Show and showcase your work to your family, friends, and neighbors!  This is a registration only camp for youth ages 12-18, and you must be able to attend all 5 days to participate.  Register below.  No previous art experience is necessary.
