Using feedback and suggestions gleaned from peer and group discussions, personal storytelling, and cultural experiences—each student has created work that communicates something important about their story, who they are, and what matters most to them. 2021 Summer Studio Teaching Artists include Tori CherryAimee HuntSamantha PagniJaison Washington, and Mary Katherine West.

In order to accommodate families with kids under the age of 12 who are not yet eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine, and in accordance with the most recent CDC guidance, masks are required at all times during The Fralin's exhibition at Welcome Gallery in August.
