Spring Break 2022 Workshop Schedule

Updated: Mar 30, 2022

You're invited to spend Spring Break (April 11 to April 15) with Marwen! The programming is brought to you by The Young Artists Collective (YAC) program, a youth-led paid program that gives young people the space to learn and explore different curatorial opportunities at Marwen through hands-on experience. Young people collaborate with each other to build leadership and facilitation skills, create youth-led community engagement opportunities, and build connections with the Marwen community.

The YAC spent the past 9 weeks designing workshops for you! Each workshop focuses around their own passions and art skills to facilitate during the week of CPS Spring Break.

Please join us this Spring Break and check out the awesome workshops they created for you below. Are you ready to register for a workshop? Sign-up here!
