at CCA Artspace 304 and the Carbondale Civic Center Corridor Gallery
In Artspace 304’s main galleries DISCOVER & ENGAGE, is the culmination of work created by youth participating in the afterschool fine arts program at the Boys and Girls Club of Carbondale and members of our local community during the Free Art Saturdays Workshops. Dr. Michael Faris, who holds a PhD in Arts Education, led both programs with the goal of providing an engaging art experience to members of the community in art workshops, educating and exploring a variety of arts media and process.
This program was made possible with the support of the Arts in Education Artist Residency Grant from the Illinois Arts Council Association and Carbondale Community Arts. This program would not be possible without the generous support from members of our local community.
A free, public reception is scheduled for Wednesday, February 22 from 5-7 PM at Artspace 304. This event is open to all- families and area youth are especially encouraged to attend.
