As part of this year's Flyover Festival, UAYis hosting a Body Positivity Workshop on Saturday, April 28th from 1-3 pm at the UAY Youth Center, (355 Iowa Avenue) in downtown Iowa City. The workshop will focus on how media impacts our thoughts and feelings about ourselves and others. We’ll take a look at different types of media and how stereotypes are reinforced or challenged and how we can react positively. Participants can make a self portrait, experiment with positive makeup techniques, and look more deeply at music and song lyrics. The goal of the workshop is to learn, make art, and practice body positivity is many different ways. The workshop is FREE and all young people in junior high or high school are welcome to attend.

This event is sponsored by: University of Iowa Art Shares.
