GirlStories is a free after school program for girls and non-binary artists ages 12-15 that empowers them to become makers and individuals, and encourages them to bring their unique perspectives into fields that are lacking a female voice.
In practice, students will explore various forms of art making to develop an artistic identity and personal voice to share their unique experiences. GirlStories will expose the participants to the work of other women artists in disciplines that include: filmmaking, performance art, writing, illustration, and sculpture. The program will include visits from guest artists and hands-on experience with techniques, processes, equipment and technologies used in making art.
