Guided by our talented Learning + Engagement Assistant, Farah Hoosain, you will be encouraged to explore new techniques, work with a variety of materials, and express your unique personality through art. Each week’s activity is influenced by the artistic trends of youth in the local community to provide a positive outlet in a safe and inclusive environment. We will play around with printmaking, sculpting, painting, and more!
As a pilot program, materials and refreshments will be provided at no cost to participants.
