Each program will provide opportunities for students ages 13-17 to create unique, artist-led work. Selected students will spend the week with Mr. Williams creating an outdoor sculpture made with crayons and wood, along with smaller, individual work. Students chosen to work with Mr. Sherman will learn a variety of printmaking skills inspired by the Andy Warhol exhibition which will be on display. Accepted students will work in a fun and interactive environment while exploring new techniques and developing their own artistic creativity.
