Youth in Arts is partnering with Alameda County Arts Commission to provide a series of free workshops at your school site in developing a Community Quilt. To celebrate Arts Education Month Youth in Arts professional artists will come to your Parent and/or Teacher meeting in March to lead a one-hour training in a community paper quilt technique which can be displayed on the school site. The paper quilt is made out of recycled materials and created on site.
The theme is “Creating A Better Future Together” and then can be geared toward the unique goals of each site. Information about follow up activities will be provided. To arrange your workshop email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone us at 415-457-4878.
We will also be creating a collaborative quilt collage in our Gallery in downtown San Rafael as part of our new exhibit “Where We Are,” which opens March 9 and features landscape watercolors by local students. Visit with your family Monday – Friday from 10am – 4pm or make an appointment for a free docent-led visit with your class or youth group.
