Art for the Soul is excited to announce a series of our Youth Social Justice Art workshops. Local artists will lead short lectures and hands-on workshops to inspire and engage youth, ages 13-18 years, around social justice issues.
Jason Montgomery, co-founder the arts activism collective Attack Bear Press and 50 Arrow Gallery, will lead this collage workshop designed to empower young participants to explore and communicate their experiences as BIPOC individuals. Through the creative process of collage-making, participants will have the opportunity to construct visual stories that reflect their perspectives on identity, culture, and social justice. For ages 13-18.
