Art and Activism: Weekend Workshop for Teens

7/20/2018 - 7/22/2018

Art and Racial Justice

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 July we will earn about artists who highlight issues of discrimination, prejudice, and intolerance through their work. Explore the topic of equity for all people of color as it pertains to education, employment, and other societal systems.

Saturday, July 21 / 9:30 – 3:30 pm: Workshops and Art Creation
