Spend your evenings at the Art Institute of Chicago! Be part of a collective of awesome teens, artists, and mentors, experiment with new ideas, techniques, and materials, connect your life and practice to our collection, and make lots of art! Teen Lab is a program for young creatives who are looking to open their minds, get inspired by the Chicago arts community, and learn more about the art world. Teen Lab participants will take field trips to local art galleries, art organizations, and colleges; go behind-the-scenes of the museum; and exhibit their work at the Art Institute in a public reception for family, friends, and museum staff.
Teen Lab meets after school during the week at the Art Institute.
Check out the Teen Programs Facebook Page to see what members of current and past Teen Lab programs have made.
Teen Lab is run in partnership with After School Matters and is currently open to Chicago Public School enrolled students.
