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.
Saturday workshops combine gallery experiences with art making in the studio. These workshops are offered one Saturday each month, and topics change regularly based on artwork and exhibitions in the museum. Participants explore the galleries and then get the chance to create their own artworks in the studio using a wide variety of media and techniques, from traditional to digital.
