What is 4-H Metro Art Force?
Metro Art Force is a special art program for youth artists and their families. If you are someone who can’t get enough of creating things, very serious about learning new techniques, and has the patience to practice those skills, then you need to register for the Art Force Workshop. The classes are open to 4-H families and their friends, of any age, including adults. However, parent/guardian must attend with Cloverbud and younger members.

4-H Metro Art Force Classes
The classes are described on the back of this flyer. You can select two classes, one from each session

Cost of Workshop
The cost is $15.00 per person for all 4-H members. $40 max per family. This fee includes all workshop costs and materials. Partial scholarship requests up to 50% will be considered.

If registering online, please bring a check to the event
