Youth Art Programs
ACG hosts monthly youth art workshops (coined Art.Work.Space.) in partnership with The RED Bookshelf and Honest Weight Food Co-op. The programs are led by local artist mentors on the 2nd Saturday of each month throughout the year. The themes of the workshops will depend on what the youth want and the medium(s) of each artist. We will have workshops in writing, mural painting, screen printing, comic book making, collaging, clothing design, graphic design, watercolor painting, music, poetry, literacy, and more!
Community & Public Art
Albany Center Gallery seeks to uplift our community with educational, thought-provoking, or inspirational works of public art. ACG's community art combines community development and locally-based art, in a way that is accessible to all. Art in the community encourages creativity and empowerment, and creates positive change while inspiring the public.
