Saturday Young Artist Workshop

Please join us for the Fall 2022 session of the Saturday Young Artist Workshop for grades K-9. For the FALL 2022 session, workshop participants will learn about PORTRAITURE. They will see how portraiture has changed throughout art history. They will create using a variety of traditional and non-traditional methods. Some age levels will learn proportion and shading. Some will be using technology. Everyone will produce portraits of
themselves and others. Come CREATE with us! 

To best serve your artists, this session we will be capping each grade level group (K-2, 3-5, & 6-9) at 15 students. Please note, Kindergarten age is defined as five years of age by September 1st of their kindergarten year. Pre-K students are NOT yet eligible for SYAW.

Register early to ensure a spot for the fall!
