This program is for teens (middle and high school) with a strong interest in visual arts looking to develop their individual skills and talent through professional instruction in a serious learning environment. The program provides the young artist an opportunity to develop their portfolio by committing to an academic year-long program for high school students and a semester long program for middle school students. Students are also involved in various community and service-learning opportunities throughout their time in the program.
High School Program students meet twice a week either Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday with some weekend events. Middle School Program students meet once a week on Fridays with some weekend events. For more information about the program contact Teen Program Coordinator Kim Bishop by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
