Fork over your favorite little lady to participate in a year-round series of month-long art & technology workshops for girls. These unique project-based workshops range from the creation of personal logos, music videos, and new media installations. Classes are held at Squeaky Wheel and partnering organizations throughout the region.
New sessions for TechArts for Girls start at the beginning of each month and meet once a week over a 4-week period. All classes are taught by practicing female artists, such as Alice Alexandrescu & Alex Spaulding, and will include special guest speakers - all who will speak and answer questions about the process of creative investigation and why she chose her field of choice. Together, the TechArts for Girls educational team will deliver the perfect roster of role models to encourage and inspire your favorite little gals to become skilled, tech-savvy foxes!
