Mural artist Keturah Bobo introduces students to the history and power of public murals in this fast-paced large-scale painting course. The class will work together on a mural project that just may take place in a high-profile location on/near High Street. Cooperative team players eager to work smart, big, and fast will get the most from this workshop.

Keturah Bobo is a visual artist living and working in Columbus. She has worked on community based mural projects with the King Arts Complex and is a graduate of CCAD.

Registration fees are just $95 per student, per workshop for the general public. Wexner Center members save: members' registration is just $75 per student, per workshop.

Locations and Equipment
All classes will be held on the top floor of Sullivant Hall OR at the Chadwick Arboretum on the Ohio State campus. Students will receive confirmation information and directions to the drop-off point for each workshop via e-mail.

In our computer classes students will work on a Macintosh laptop. Children are welcome to bring digital cameras from home for photography-related classes; but please remember to include the cord, battery-charging system, and an empty memory chip. If you don’t have a digital camera, just let us know and we will provide one.

Changes and Cancellations
Dates and times are subject to change. The Wexner Center reserves the right to cancel classes due to insufficient enrollment without incurring obligations. If a class is canceled, you may transfer to another class or request a full tuition refund. If you withdraw from a summer workshop up to seven days before the event, you will receive a full refund less a $25 cancellation fee. No refunds will be given after that time.

Friday Celebrations
Each Summer Kids workshop culminates in a final celebration during the last half-hour of class. Parents, guardians, friends, and family are invited to join the class at this time to see what the young artists have done.
