Young Artists Workshop art show set for Saturday

by Andrea Hahn

CARBONDALE, Ill. -- They worked hard for eight weeks of Saturdays at Southern Illinois University Carbondale and their efforts culminate in an art show on one more Saturday.

This Saturday, Oct. 25, the Young Artists Workshop hosts an art show and reception in the halls of the Allyn Building from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m.

The Saturday Young Artists Program is an outreach of the School of Art and Design for area students from kindergarten through seniors in high school. Students participate in age-appropriate art classes, getting instruction and inspiration from SIUC students. This year’s theme is “Portraits.”

The event is free and open to the public. For more information on this and other programs, contact Sally Gradle, assistant professor of art education, at 618/453-7765 or gradle@siu.edu.
