Our Teen Art Studio is back! Our two-hour weekly sessions offer teens an open, supportive environment to explore their creativity and develop their artistic techniques. Each class will be led by a professional artist from the community and will be split up into two parts: group project time, and individual time. This year’s classes will be held in UVAA’s Imagination Station and feature a variety of media, including printing, drawing, painting, and clay.
