Allerton Park & Retreat Center

Youth Art Studio

with Belinda Beccue


Allerton Park and the Monticello Area Arts Council are partnering to offer a Youth Art Studio for 3rd to 8th graders inspired by the unique beauty of Allerton Park. This one-day workshop is an immersive artistic experience that allows the artist to communicate through multiple mediums and emphasize the natural world.

Projects will include canvas painting, wire sculpture, mixed media printmaking, animal sculpture, and more. This program will introduce a variety of materials and techniques, expand skill sets, and develop mastery and expressive style of the young artist.

The day will culminate with an art exhibit and reception held in The Studio at 4pm. The instructor of the workshop is Belinda Beccue, local artist and educator. The Monticello Area Arts Council joins Allerton Park in offering valuable art experiences and opportunities to engage the community.

Please bring a non-perishable sack lunch, a refillable water bottle, and wear clothes appropriate for a hike and messy art creation.  All art materials are included in the registration fee.

If you will need disability-related accommodations in order to participate, please email Sarah Putman at
