Heart of the Beast’s Art Shaping Change Workshops are annually recurring, free art classes taught by local creatives that explore social justice themes.

The focus of Art Shaping Change 2023 is climate justice. Three unique art-making virtual workshops will be held this January and February along with three in person puppet making workshops.

All participants ranging from beginners to experts of all ages are welcome. Kids will need an adult with them to assist.
