The workshops, during which students learn legends and folktales, then write riddles, sotires, and poems and create 2-d and 3-d artworks, are led by Bertha Rogeres with the assistance of interns, including Meredith Hammerslag, Walton; and regional artists, including Doug Jamieson, Treadwell and others TBA, are taught at the Center's Education Wing. There is a fee of $55 for each session, due to New York's fiscal crisis that resulted in a reduction in state funding, but we have kept the fee at the lowest possible level.
