Allerton Park and the Monticello Area Arts Council are partnering to offer a Youth Art Studio inspired by the unique beauty of Allerton Park and the philosophy of Robert Allerton to live life as art.

Projects will include plein air canvas painting, printmaking, watercolor, scratchboard, and upcycled art created from reusable materials. Artists will begin their day by touring the formal gardens and natural areas to draw inspiration for their studio work. This program will introduce a variety of materials and techniques, expand skill sets, and develop mastery and expressive style of the young artist.

The day will culminate with an art exhibit and reception. The instructor of the workshop is Belinda Beccue, local artist and educator. The Monticello Area Arts Council joins Allerton Park in offering valuable art experiences and opportunities to engage the community.

Youth Art Studio is open to students ages 3rd – 8th grade and will take place from 9:00am – 3:00pm in the Visitor Center Auditorium. Please meet in the Greenhouse Café for a reception and exhibit immediately after.

Cost: $75 (all materials included in registration fee)
Space is limited. Registration ends March 24.
