Young Artist workshops

Each Saturday in January we are hosting a variety of FREE workshops where students can learn and create a piece of artwork to enter in our upcoming Young Artist Showcase. All of our workshops will be taught by local artists and educators, and are designed to introduce students to a media and style of art that they can create. These workshops will all take place at Lee Academy for the Arts.

Space is limited, so please reserve your spot below. If for any reason you are unable to attend a workshop after you reserve a spot, please notify the Arts Council as soon as possible. We anticipate waiting lists for many of our workshops. If you are unable to reserve a spot and would like to be placed on the wait list, please email your information to phcarts@gmail.com. In order to give all students the opportunity to experience this hands-on learning experience, we ask that you choose up to three workshops. If you would like to participate in more than that, please send us an email and we will put you on a standby list in for additional workshops. Thank you for your cooperation.

Times and dates have been updated for those workshops that were snowed out.
