Home / Children / Young Artist Workshop

 

This year’s Young Artist Workshop is going virtual! Learn about the world of picture book art in a fun, exciting way with help from children’s book illustrators and our Mazza staff. Young artists will create daily art projects using different techniques and media inspired by original illustrations from picture books.

 

Monday, July 20 - Friday, July 24

This year’s theme is “Flip it!” During this virtual workshop, students will learn through live interaction with each other, Mazza staff, and our volunteer teachers on Zoom and Google Classroom. We will be flipping, changing, and rearranging the media process used on already created works of art to come up with something new and unique. Creativity, imagination and innovation collide at Young Artist Workshop 2020!
