Artist in the Making (AIM)

With the retirement of the GRACEArt Program by the Greater Reston Arts Center, we welcome Wolftrap's own art program: Artist In the Making, or AIM.

 

The Wolftrap's Artist In the Making program strives to turn each student into a life-long art lover. By teaching art through both the masters and established modern artists, we teach art that AIMs to teach the foundations of art and artist techniques.
