Teacher Training Class

Located inside Art 120's workshop, just off Main and Broad at 1511 Williams Street, Art 120 will be holding a special teacher training class beginning July 6th. The 7 day course runs Friday-Saturday and Monday-Friday from 9am to 5pm with an 1 hour break for lunch. Teachers will learn how to instruct a team through Art 120’s STEAM-based program using a variety of tools and techniques, including welding. To really provide a hands-on experience, teachers will work in teams to build an art bike of their own design just like our students.

The cost for the class is $400 and includes all gear, supplies, and materials. Adults from all disciplines are encouraged to apply. If participants satisfy the requirements of the course and can commit to teaching, they will be eligible to receive a teaching stipend to offset their tuition depending on commitment and availability. Each teacher will be assigned a team of four youth and an assistant for the student program. There are only twelve slots available on a first come, first serve basis, so please register ASAP!

Summer Art Bike Camp

Concluding the teacher training class, the student Summer Art Bike Camp will begin! Students ages 11 -15 will work in teams to complete several art bike contraptions, learning about the art of sculpture, design, fabrication, engineering, problem solving, and introduction to welding. Students will also have the opportunity to participate with their created bikes in several public events throughout the year and share their creations with the community.

The class will be from July 13th through the 24th, Monday to Friday, from 8AM to Noon. For those who apply by June 19th, the camp cost $400 per student. After June 19th, the price will be $500. This special, fee-based program not only teaches welding and engineering concepts, but also helps us provide more opportunities for underserved youth in the community.
