[slideshow] 2012 is going in the right direction! This past Saturday - Jan 14th we had an opportunity to meet for our monthly mentorship meeting and we tried to change it up a bit. We also welcomed several new students and their mentors to the program with a fun icebreaker to get us talking and laughing. Here are a few images for Saturday meet and greet, if you pay close attention you can check out the things we want to do together. If you're wondering about the yarn - no warn was wasted in the process of this meeting!
I also had a chance to catch up with your newly formed Youth Art Board members here at Pros Arts Studio yesterday. We spent our MLK holiday talking about and planning workshops and the upcoming Art&Grind panel series. What better way to spend holiday but talking about ways we can provide resources and education/career information to area youth. So be on the lookout for upcoming events from the Pros Arts Studio Youth Art Board!
