These free classes are scheduled on Saturday, 12pm-1pm for youth (ages 6-12) and 1:30pm-2:30pm for teens (ages 13-17). This is an opportunity for the youth communities of Trenton and the surrounding counties to take inspiration from Artworks instructors Kate Eggleston and Greta Carlton as they guide students through the various facets of art.
