Saturday Young Artist Workshop

Please join us for the Spring 2022 session of the Saturday Young Artist Workshop for grades K-9. This spring the students will study the habits of artists.  They will be given tools which will be theirs to take home at the end of the 5-week session. They will be taught how to care for these tools and the techniques needed to fully utilize these tools. They will be guided in the creation of artwork using these tools and these techniques.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 spring!

COVID Protocol

SIU is committed to protecting the community, so current campus and state pandemic safety protocols will be followed. For more information on SIU’s response to the coronavirus and university guidelines, view our coronavirus website. The wearing of face coverings is encouraged but not required in most settings. However, masks will still be required in some situations. Per the university’s agreement with the Faculty Association, if the instructor specified a mask requirement in their syllabus at the beginning of the spring ’22 semester, masks will still be required in that classroom and/or lab. Face masks are required where regulated by government entities such as public transportation and health care settings. Thank you for your consideration and cooperation!
