Art programs begin


Two student programs offered by the New Hampshire Institute of Art in Manchester begin next week.
Students are invited to register. Scholarships are available to cover participation costs.
ARTLAB Afterschool starts Tuesday, Oct. 2 and Oct. 4. Every session goes on for six weeks, from 4-6 p.m.
The program supports students aged 12-18 exploring new art techniques such as painting, drawing, digital arts, sculpture and printmaking.
“They extremely support kids to do what they love,” said Shannon Riley-Martin, an art teacher at Concord High School. Studenting will have a chance to show off their work at the end of the session.
The cost for ARTLAB is $85 per student. Fees help pay for supplies, snacks and instructions.

Friday Night CoLAB (short for collaboration) runs from 4-8 p.m. in a different studio on the NHIA Manchester campus. The first coLAB meeting is Oct. 26.
This program is for teens who want to focus on screen printing and who want to learn new digital art techniques.
Every month students from the ages 12 to 18 will be exposed to new art material as well as strengthen their knowledge of art. The club focus on creating your own designs and learning to put designs on shirts and posters.
The cost for CoLAB is $38 per student.
The art programs provide a great way to meet people and get involved in the community. At the end of  six weeks, students have an opportunity to showcase their work.
