ArtWorks is a five-week, free program for students ages 14-18 years old. Students participating in the program 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 creative projects and design solutions to meet client or community partner needs. ArtWorks students installed Out of the Blue at the Grand Rapids W. Fulton Parking Lot as part of UICA's Exit Space Project in 2016.
