Choose from Printmaking, Public Art and Murals, DIY Magazine making, Photography, and Stop Motion workshops. Early registration is encouraged as we expect these camps to fill up quickly!
The Matthew J. Mahoney Artist-in-Residence program is named in honor of our dear friend, the prolific and talented artist Matt Mahoney, who passed away in 2017.
Matt was SDAI's second artist-in-residence, and helped develop and grow this important program that has a significant impact on the lives of emerging artists as they create new, contemporary work.
