Youth Summer Art Workshops - Student Exhibition
Exhibition Dates: September 6, 2023 - September 30, 2023
Opening Reception: Saturday, September 9 @ 2pm-4pm
This exhibition gives students the opportunity to display work they created during the summer in our Featured Front Gallery
for all Art Garage visitors to enjoy, and to experience what showing in a gallery is like. This includes creating work, naming
work, pricing work, and attending a gallery opening reception.

This exhibition features work from one or more students from each workshop offered throughout the summer!

Designed for ages 6 to 16, The Art Garage Youth Summer Art Workshops program encourages young students to discover their inspiration and express themselves in new ways! Our workshops stimulate inquisitiveness, inspire the pursuit of creativity, and encourage self-expression. In these workshops young artists engage in the creative process from start to finish through new and unique lessons developed by our instructors in collaboration with The Art Garage staff. While our program explores a range of mediums and artistic skills, the goal of our workshops is to let children discover various ways to use their imagination and to ultimately turn something ordinary into extraordinary!
