Young artists will love this Virtual Visual Art BlackRock In a Box program. Each week a BlackRock box of art tools and materials are inspired by a theme, phrase, or art concept. Students come together with a Teaching Artist for a lesson that will develop art skills and concepts such as drawing, painting, and sculpting as well as expression and interpretation of the theme. Instruction will be virtually delivered daily by a certified art instructor and conclude with a gallery walk and discussion.
