In this design and collage work­shop, youth will learn how to create a textured back­ground and layers of patterns to produce an eye-catching base for your work of art. Next, youth will learn how to create a sense of drama and mystery in their art iconic imagery, utilizing focal point, emphasis, and vibrant colors. Create a masterful design that will capture the imag­i­na­tion with a sense of wonder through visual story­telling.

This program is hosted by the Hemi­spheric Conver­sa­tions Urban Art Project. HCUAP is working in part­ner­ship with Rivers of Steel Arts and The Univer­sity of Pitts­burgh, to galva­nize the rela­tion­ship between post-indus­­trial envi­ron­ments and urban arts.
