The Henderson State University Summer Intensive Studio Teen Workshop is a week long, studio experience for students age 13 to 18. The program is funded by a grant from the Horn Foundation and an Arkansas Arts Council Mini-Grant. Participants will engage in a variety of studio art workshops culminating with an exhibit in the Russell Fine Arts gallery. The workshop will meet during the week of June 19 - 23, 2017 on the campus of Henderson State University. 

The program is a day camp workshop experience with the goal of immersing students in our college art studios. Participants will select classes including Ceramics, Screen-Prints, Japanese Printmaking, Papermaking, and Digital Art as well as other studio art activities during the day. Lunch, some materials, and operational costs will be covered by grants. Lunch will be provided during the day for each student participant.

Studio art workshops are perfect for teens in the summer.
