The Discipline of a Professional Artist in His Studio is one in a series of art workshops offered by a consortium of Atlantic County arts groups, said Cynthia Mason Purdie, administrator of the Atlantic County Office of Cultural & Heritage Affairs.

Lewis, of Folsom, will also talk with teens about the discipline and balance needed to succeed as an artist, including professional ethics and protection of one’s creative side.
