Art and Activism: Weekend Workshop for Teens

8/17/2018 - 8/19/2018

LGBTQ Art and Artists

Join the Art Center for a free series of summer Art Activism workshops for teens! Using the Art Center’s permanent collections as a catalyst, teens will discuss social movements and discover the power of activism through artistic expression. Each workshop will consist of a tour, peer discussion, and studio art project. Come together with other teens to celebrate, share, create, and discuss activism and art while working alongside local artists.

In August we will discover artists who have participated in LGBTQ social and political movements. Create art in response to discussions about LGBTQ theory and history.
