S.L.I.C.E: Powerful Stories Told Through Art

Wednesday, May 11, 2022,

Virtual via Zoom

Students Learning Innovative Creative Endeavors (S.L.I.C.E.) is a program for students ages 13–19, offering unique experiences at creative arts organizations throughout Waterville. Each session is packed with interesting programs, activities, and discussions about careers in the arts.

At this interactive virtual workshop, students will view 15 silkscreen prints based on the life of Toussaint Louverture, the 18th Century Haitian revolutionary general. This series created by artist Jacob Lawrence chronicles important and powerful stories of little-known histories within the larger context of racial justice themes. Students will receive art materials to create their own series to tell a story through images. The program will be led by artist Kanon Shambora ’21 and Kris Bergquist, the Colby Museum’s Mirken Curator of Education and Engagement.

Please visit the Waterville Creates website for more information or to register for this free workshop. Teens can register for one, a few, or all of the workshops being offered during Spring 2022.
