DENTON, Texas (UNT) – A digital photography workshop, the second Saturdays in the UNT Art Gallery event presented by College of Visual Arts and Design students this semester, will help young students understand visual arts by allowing them to create their own art while also viewing the latest gallery exhibition.

David Herman, co-founder and creative director of Preservation LINK Inc. and a UNT art education doctoral student, will lead students in kindergarten through 12th grade and their families in a digital photography workshop at the UNT Art Gallery, 1201 W. Mulberry St., Denton.

Preservation LINK Inc. is a Dallas based education agency that works to educate youth through visual and media arts. Herman extends personal artistic and cultural exploration through his traveling lens-based exhibits and works to advance the field of visual culture, preservation and education.

Students will learn while visiting the gallery's current exhibition, Marking a Course, which displays figurative artworks that convey meaning through distinct marking. Artists David Bailin, Matt Duffin and Michael O'Keefe have pieces with varying subject matter, but that include elements of paradox, humor, absurdity, temporality or chance. The exhibition runs through March 29.

Saturdays in the UNT Art Gallery offer family activities with visiting artists for children in kindergarten through grade 12 and their parents/guardians. Art educators in the College of Visual Arts and Design student chapter of the National Art Education Association lead the events.

Saturdays in the UNT Art Gallery take place from 1 to 3 p.m. at the UNT Art Gallery, 1201 W. Mulberry St., Denton. The events are free, but due to space constraints RSVPs are requested by emailing gallery@unt.edu. In addition to street meters, there is parking available at the Union Circle Garage, 1155 Union Circle, and the Highland Street Garage, at Avenue A and Highland Street. More information on parking garages at UNT, including rates, is available on the UNT Parking Garage web page.

The final spring Saturdays in the UNT Art Gallery event will be April 12, held in conjunction with the 54th Annual Voertman Student Art Competition, and featuring poet and UNT alumna Lynn Lewis leading a poetry workshop, and the student art competition winners as the guest artists.
