All teens ages 13-18 are invited for a FREE drop-in art-making session on the third Saturday of each month from 1:00-3:00 p.m. to explore modern and contemporary artwork, meet other talented teens, and experiment with different materials and a wide range of art forms such as visual art, slam poetry, fashion, and creative writing – hosted by the Kemper Teen Arts Council.  Kicking off Saturday, March 17, teens will explore the "Nkame" exhibition and create a poem and/or visual art piece inspired by their thoughts, feelings, and ideas about Belkis Ayón’s artwork and how it connects to their lives.
