A Free Workshop Series for Families at the WaterFire Arts Center

WaterFire Providence announces the launch of ArtLab@WaterFire: Creative Labs, a new and free workshop series for families of all ages to ignite their creativity and make art together. Hosted on weekends at the WaterFire Arts Center (WFAC), these workshops are available to kids and families of all ages and will be taught by local artists in the Rhode Island community, including artists from WaterFire Accelerate.

Attendees and their families will have a range of different activities to choose from, including jewelry and ornament making as well as knitting. Each workshop will be hosted in the Cityside at Wheeler studio on the second floor of the WaterFire Arts Center. This program is an expansion of ArtLab@WaterFire, a one-year paid internship and mentorship program for young BIPOC males to learn about the arts & culture industry funded by the Papitto Opportunity Connection.

Space is limited for these workshops. Please use the links below to RSVP for all the workshops you’re interested in. Additional details and RSVP links will be posted here as they become available.

For more information regarding this workshop series, feel free to contact Grechel Rosado, Programs Coordinator, at [email protected] (401) 250-0124
