Participation is free. The program will take place over 6 sessions between July 8-August 12, 2020. YAC sessions meet once per week, on Wednesdays from 2-4pm. The deadline for applications is June 8, 2020. To learn more, contact Natalie Beall, Education Specialist, at nbeall@folkartmuseum.org, or fill out an online application.
