701 CCA Summer Art Workshops – Summer 2015

Sign up your young artist today!

This Summer, 701 Center for Contemporary Art presents its fifth Youth Summer Art Workshops. Children and teens ages 6 to 17 have the opportunity to get hands-on experience in the arts, creating artwork under the guidance of local artists and art instructors. Students are able to work in ceramics, painting and drawing, try their hand at print making and much more!

Classes are held at 701 CCA’s Artist-in-Residence studio loft, located on the second floor of the historic 701 Whaley building in Columbia. The building used to be the community center for mill workers and residents of the nearby Olympia mill village. Now Columbia’s budding artists can join the creative community at 701 CCA.
