ArtWorks is a five-week, free program for students ages 14-18 years old. Students participating in the program will receive on-site job training and mentorship, and engage in art, design, and installation projects. Led by highly qualified instructors and artists, students work in small groups on the creative process, and design solutions to client or community partner needs. 


PROJECT 1 / COMMUNITY MURAL

Students will work with a Lead Artist to plan and execute a community revitalization initiative and mural project in a public space. Students will work with neighbors and business owners in the community to generate a design concept and installation supported and enjoyed by the individuals living and working in the area. 

 

PROJECT 2 / GRAPHIC DESIGN INSTALLATION

Students will work with a Lead Artist and Designer, UICA staff, and a local business to conceptualize, create, and produce a series of graphic designs that will serve educational and promotional purposes. The final outcome will be a large scale site-specific installation using a variety of production materials. 

 


ArtWorks runs Mon–Thurs for five weeks
from 10:00am–2:00pm.
