____________________________________________________________________________________________Designed for ages 6 to 16, The Art Garage’s Youth Summer Art Workshop program encourages young students to discover their inspiration and express themselves in new ways! From painting to drawing, and printmaking to mixed media, our five-day workshops stimulate inquisitiveness, inspire the pursuit of creativity, and encourage self-expression!
Housed in the old cannery building on Main Street, located in downtown Green Bay's Arts District, our studios are packed with history, filled with natural light, and equipped with all of the tools and materials needed for each lesson! In these studios, 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. On the final day of class (Friday), our young artists will share the week’s work with family and friends in a causal "showcase". Each week, an instructor will also choose one student's final project to be in our August Exhibition. On the opening day of this exhibition, July 30th from 5pm-7pm, we invite family and friends to join us in The Art Garage gallery, located at 1400 Cedar Street, for an Artist Reception featuring these youth artists along with complimentary food and drinks, live youth performances, and more!
While our Summer Art Workshop program explores a range of media 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!
