Photos: Last day at Mademill with AFO

Our last day with Mademill / prototypeD was a blast! The youth had the opportunity to paint with Virtual Reality and water-based spray-paint.

Thank you again to all the organizers at Mademill who made this 3 day workshop happen, to our educators, volunteers and staff.

Youth of all ages will have the opportunity to try painting, mixed-media, eco-art, textured collaging and more. Parents are welcome to stay, but there will be volunteers to assist. Workshops are drop-in style and are open to all youth.

Please note, we are only accepting 12 registrants per workshop due to space limitations and the need for an intimate environment. We ask all participants to register for the entire six weeks. If participants are unable to attend a workshop, please contact us so that we can contact those on the waitlist.

The workshop is regularly 12 weeks, but due to summer activities, the workshop has been divided into 2 six week programs. This is the first session.

Registration for the program is free on Eventbrite. To register please visit:

We look forward to creating with you!
