In cooperation with the IUP Chapter of the National Art Education Association (NAEA), the University Museum will offer a Bright Ideas Art Workshop for youth in grades 3–8 on Saturday, May 3, 2014, from 11:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

Bright Ideas is designed and led by NAEA members and assisted by museum board members. Youth attending the workshop will start with a guided tour of the exhibition “Roots and Wings” in the University Museum.

Returning to Sprowls Hall, they will create an art project to take home, experimenting with mixed media techniques inspired by the exhibition’s theme of birds and plant life.

The free workshop includes a box lunch from campus dining, also free of charge. For complete information and to register for the workshop, contact Olivia Mays at or telephone (814) 599-2285.
