The Random Acts of Art Workshop (RAAW) at the Judith & Norman Alix Art Gallery (JNAAG) is the perfect summer workshop! This creative intensive workshop is designed just for teens ages 14-18. Led by a practicing professional artist, RAAW is the perfect balance of instruction and experimentation. No experience necessary.
Learn to design 2D and 3D sculptures through the art of felting with artist Patti Cook for RAAW Fibres during this four-day workshop taking place on July 10-13, 2018 from 11:00AM-4:00PM.
