Fresh StART is Green Art Workshop’s teacher training initiative. In this class series, participants will learn about sustainable art practices and develop related creative skills through hands-on making, brainstorming, and feedback sessions. They will then develop their own eco-conscious art curriculum and learn the best practices for sharing these techniques in their schools and communities. Upon completion of the program, teachers will be ready to inspire the next generation of green artists!

Please Note: At the first class, participants will have the option to register for one graduate credit through Worcester State University.
