Are you a teen interested in entering the Banner Project but not quite sure how to go about it? This live Teen Banner Project Session is for you! Tara Higgins will walk you through the steps and help work around a theme.

They would really love to see teen artists have a presence at the Banner Project this year. The feedback I've gotten is that they many would love to submit a piece of art or photography but are pretty stymied and overwhelmed by the process. So, they've put this special Banner Project session together just for teens.
