HEMI will be offering a variety of Extreme Arts Workshops over the 2017-18 academic year. These will be a series of art and design workshops geared towards the non-artist and taught by  Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) faculty. The goal is to foster cross-disciplinary thinking and collaboration through hands-on demonstrations.

The workshops are free and open to Johns Hopkins University students.

They are made possible by an Arts Innovation faculty grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

Check back often for an updated list of workshop offerings!
