AuSable Artisan Village's Art In A Day program brings art and creative workshops to children who do not currently receive art opportunities at school. During the 2020 school year, five AAV artists and affiliate instructors taught workshops to the entire 4th grade class of Grayling Elementary School.
Artists included AAV's own Terry Dickinson and Sandra Michalik. Affiliate instructors included Val Whaley, Chris Sheldon, and Janet & Rick McBride. The five workshops taught were color wheel theory, perspective drawing, drawing with a grid, texture, and architecture. Special thanks to our class coordinator, Kathy Ellison, who initiated and organized this special programming. Additional thanks to multiple volunteers who assisted children in the classroom. Artisan Village hopes to expand the Art In A Day programming annually.
