Classes and Workshops

Are you interested in experimenting with new media and art techniques in the museum? Join us for one of our classes or workshops for teens.

We offer classes and workshops for teens during Family Festivals, in the summers, and on Saturdays throughout the year. Visit for a drop-in program, register for a Saturday workshop, or apply for a week-long summer program at the museum.

We’re taking a short break from Saturday Teen Workshops for a few months to plan, research, and roll out some fresh ideas and new programs!

Stay tuned for more updates by following us on social media and signing up for our teen e-news. In the meantime, there are tons of great gallery talks and public programs to join. Take a look at the Art Institute's calendar to check out upcoming events. 

Take a look at our Saturday Studio Workshops to explore the summer 2016 programs offered for teens at the Art Institute of Chicago, and keep an eye out here for announcements throughout the year about new summer opportunities.

Teen Studio is a free drop-in program offered during Family Festivals and is best for teens and their families. 

To register for a Teen Studio Workshop, contact us at or (312) 857-7142. Payment must be made at the time of registration.

Workshops fill quickly, so keep an eye on these pages and let us know if you’d like to register for any upcoming programs.
