For 14 weeks in the Spring of 2017, a group of local teenagers and adults came together for 3 hours each week to share a meal, meet an artist, create something, and trade stories -- AIR IT OUT!
By connecting the group to local artists, makers and educators, students explored a wide range of creative mediums, including screen printing, drip painting, string gardens, music production, chemistry, photography, and creative writing. The gropu also had the opportunity to to visit several art galleries and attend local art openings.
The AIR IT OUT exhibition and party was the culmination of a semester's work but also the launching pad for young minds.

For week 10, local painter, Ashley Robertson, led the group through the adventure of drip painting. Messy, experimental, fun!
During weeks 5 and 6, local artists, Adam Villegas, Sydney Parsons and Noah Huber, joined Air It Out group leader, Faisal Abdu'allah to lead the group through the many stages of screen printing.
