We are excited to collaborate with local artists and offer FREE Art Workshops for middle & high school students! This is a great opportunity to learn from a working artist plus ask questions about embarking on a career in the arts.
Wire-Work Sun Catchers:
Learn wire working techniques while making a sun catcher with local jewelry artist Rachel Rogers-Rodgers. Finished pieces will be 3-4″ across and suitable for display indoors or out. Materials will be provided and include copper wire and an assortment of glass and semi-precious gemstone beads.
Saturday, April 8 from Noon to 3:00 PM
Each workshop will be limited to 15 students. Materials and supplies included.
Registration is required. Please call us at 540-955-2004 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Student Art Workshops are made possible by a grant from the Marion Park Lewis Rappahannock Electric Cooperative’s Operation Round Up® (Power of Change)
