Please join us for the Fall 2020 session of the Saturday Young Artist Workshop for ages K-9. This spring the students will be exploring printmaking techniques and how artists use the concept of multiples for artistic impact and to share information. To best serve your artists, this session we will be capping each grade level group (K-2, 3-5, & 6-9) at 15 students, so register early to ensure a spot for the fall!


9–11 am
February 8, 22 and 29; March 21 and 28

Art Exhibit is Saturday, April 4 in the Vergette Gallery


Who Can Attend?
Children in grades K - 9 can attend.

The benefits of this program are two-fold: (1) pre-service art teachers gain knowledge and experience in teaching art to children prior to student teaching, and (2) children from the community obtain art instruction with a student-teacher ratio that encourages personal hands on art instruction.

Students will meet in the Allyn Building, Room 102.

Cost is $50 for one child, $40 for second child and $30 for additional children
