Green Art Workshop is a hands-on, eco-conscious program that brings teaching artists into classrooms and community centers. In our workshops, participants create imaginative personal and collaborative projects as they re-envision everyday discarded materials. We encourage environmental awareness and critical thinking throughout the creative process.
