Consider applying to A.W.E.’s Truck Studio this summer!
Artist Working in Education’s Truck Studio program provides meaningful, drop-in art enrichment activities free of charge to children ages 4 – 14 in underserved neighborhoods. We present programs on site to help participants become more inquisitive, creative, flexible, imaginative and confident while fostering a sense of community among children, artists, and Milwaukee neighborhoods.

These four Truck Studios will visit approximately 18 Milwaukee parks and playgrounds on weekday afternoons from 12-3pm for six weeks beginning June 29 and running through August 7, 2015.
