This event has been POSTPONED due to illness - we will reschedule for early May, stay tuned!
Make art together while connecting with water at this free workshop led by Graci Horne, a Lakota/Dakota mixed media artist whose work emphasizes the sacredness of water.
Youth will hear from Graci about her experiences with art and community activism, and will have a chance to make and take their own artwork that speaks to the ways water matters to their lives and communities. This free workshop is open to youth ages 13 - 19 and includes lunch. Caregiving adults are invited to join a parallel water story circle facilitated by Water Bar artists and community partners. This is a free program, but we are asking participants to RSVP here to help us prepare food and other supplies.
