Jr. designer workshops

A new addition to our programming!

Available to students grades 4-8, pupils learn the basics of the design process and are exposed to creative industry standards and methods of production.

Thrive’s Junior Designer Workshops take place at the Thrive Center. The Thrive Center, located at 415 Ohio Street in historic downtown Helena, Arkansas, is a new asset to the Helena area and to the services that Thrive provides to the community. The arrival of the Thrive Center expands Thrive’s ability to provide creative industry skills to area students like never before, opening up access to new career paths. The Thrive Center is staffed by knowledgeable industry professionals and is equipped with a wood shop, paint shop, screen printing shop, computer lab with graphic design software, audio/visual equipment, VR/AR equipment and a 3-D printer.

Students will leave the Thrive workshop with knowledge of the third largest job producer in the state of Arkansas, the creative industry, and with a physical piece of a design that they created in the workshop - this could include a custom T-shirt or an album cover!
