Art 120 is thrilled to announce the opening of their new location just off Main and Broad at 1511 Williams Street. Their new studio will serve as their main office and workshop space to create, teach, and build mobile creations. “We are especially excited about the opportunity to introduce youth to welding this year.” said executive director, Kathryn Warren.
This year, Art 120 is partnering with the Bethlehem Center to bring their youth through the Urban Art Bike Program. In order to accommodate this group, Art 120 is holding special teacher training classes beginning June 6th. The 7 day course runs Friday-Saturday and Monday-Friday from 9am to 5pm with a 1 hour break for lunch. Teachers will learn how to instruct a team through Art 120’s sculpture process using a variety of tools and techniques, including welding.
The cost for the class is $400 and includes all gear, supplies, and materials. If participants satisfy the requirements of the course and can commit to teaching, they will be eligible to receive a stipend of up to $1600 and have their tuition reimbursed depending on commitment and availability. Each teacher will be assigned a team of four youth and an assistant for each three week session.
Youth Session 1 Monday thru Thursday, Noon-3pm June 16- July 4th Fridays, 10am-2:30pm.
Youth Session 2Monday thru Thursday, Noon-3pm July 7- July 25th. Fridays, 10am-2:30pm.
