Learn from a public artist

Dublin Arts Council is excited to partner with public artist and art educator Todd Smith who will provide instruction for the incubator program. Smith is a celebrated public artist and creator of Dublin’s beloved Exuvia sculptures in Coffman Park. Smith joins us from Telluride Mountain School in Telluride, Co., where he teaches art to students of all ages.

Health and Safety 

Once enrolled, students and their parents/guardians will be asked to complete a student release form with necessary health and safety information.
