Join us in the Cone Park Teen Room on Tuesdays and Thursday, April 16-May 9, at 4:00 pm for an exciting new workshop series presented by Rachel Brintinall: Made Bayou!*
Made Bayou is an opportunity for students to learn design principles in conjunction with social media marketing techniques to produce tangible products for purchase. Participants will learn new creative skills through tutorials in a studio-style environment, working closely with classmates and the instructor to complete a set of unique prints. Participants will complete the program with a new set of skills that can be applied outside of the classroom and with future creative endeavors.
