Different Canvas Camp
Registration for 2019 is CLOSED. Stay tuned for 2020 camp dates!
Different Canvas is a FREE day camp for 12-17 year old youth. This camp is open to all genders and all races, though it is curated for the youth of color experience. We will spend the week exploring healing, identity, and community through art. We will specifically be exploring what it means to heal from the impacts of historic and ongoing racism and marginalization.
We will have workshops with visiting artists, group discussions, and field trips, all culminating in a gallery show for families and community members.
