Freestyle Paint Session (5th-8th Grade) and The Art of Business 5th-12th Grade


Freestyle Paint - Students gather during the four week session to create artwork to display and sell. An art show is the culmination of the session, where students can display and/or sell their pieces for a profit.

The Art of Business - Students learned how to turn their passion for art into business! Topics like branding, marketing, and customer service were explored over this four week session. Students participated in the art show, and created Instagram business accounts to help increase their visibility.

Village STEAM Studio -5th-8th Grade

Multistudio associates led our VKC kids in a mini STEAM workshop! This focus was robots and in addition to learning how to create cues and tracks, students created stories that complimented their robot's actions.

Our goal is to expose Black youth to opportunities in industries where we are vastly underrepresented, like Architecture and Design.
