Marco Island area youth will have a special opportunity to develop their art skills and appreciation at the Marco Island Center for the Arts 2016 Youth and Family Summer Workshops. The program also encourages family bonding through family workshops where adults and children spend fun and creative quality time together.
Participating young artists will have the chance to not only produce original works of art, but to also display their creations during the Young Artists’ Reception on July 29, 2016.
Five workshops are planned:
Family Fun with Coil Bowls – June 18 (9:30 AM-12:30 PM). Participants must be a team of parent (or other adult) with a child between 7-14 years of age. The workshop will use different thicknesses of extruded coils to fashion bowls.
