ArtsPlace Spring Workshop

Spring Break Arts Workshops

 Rockford Area Arts Council (RAAC) is offering art workshops led by professional artists to teens in the Rockford and surrounding areas.  The Spring Arts Workshop features two specialized workshops in gelli prints with Bruce McDonald, hip hop dance with Marvin Hawkins, portrait photography with Duncan Richardson, creative writing with Sharon Nesbit-Davis and theater with David Causey.

Workshops will be held on March 28th and 29th from 1:00-4:00 p.m. at the Mendelssohn Performing Arts Center.  These workshops will be FREE to attend, but donations are always appreciated.  In this setting you will be able to either immerse yourself in one team or be a little adventurous in two-different art forms!
