Detroit Neighborhood Arts Workshops (DNAW) East students have been attending Saturday art classes at the Matrix Human Services Center this school year. DNAW East students have had the great opportunity to create work that range in vast mediums from encaustic to acrylic painting, from glass and tile mosiacs to mixed media sculptural work and more.

Keep up the great work!
