Upcoming summer teen workshops @ SCAD MOA include:
Thurs. June 2 2022: Transcend 2D self-portraiture. Hayv Kahraman’s images of Middle Eastern women are representations of the artist’s mind, body, and spirit.

Thurs. June 9 2022: Join SCAD photography specialists to learn hot techniques for high fashion photos. Bring a camera photo or digital camera. Learn more here.
Thurs. June 16 2022: Design experimental furniture with unusual materials. Discover the dexterous materiality of Sang Hoon Kim’s works in his SCAD MOA exhibition Soft Spot.

Thurs. June 23 2022: Chill and thrill at color theory. Tour Katharina Grosse’s exhibition Chill Seeping and discuss the many ways of looking at the work. Then experiment with an alternative dyeing method to create unique color field studies. Learn more here.
