Student work from the Skytop Art Workshops for Children, an offering of the art education program in Syracuse University’s College of Visual and Performing Arts (VPA), will be exhibited in “The Big Show” on Saturday, April 4, from 1-3 p.m. in the Panasci Lounge in the Hildegarde and J. Myer Schine Student Center. The exhibition is free and open to the public. Parking is available in the Waverly lot.

The workshops cost $65 for one child and $100 for two siblings; all art supplies are provided by the art education program.
