FAM= Family Art-Making at ArtForce Iowa

ArtForceIowa is bringing families, caregivers, guardians, and youth together to heal through the arts. Family Art-Making is a program designed to allow youth and their loved ones to learn new things together and collaborate on different projects during our workshops.
