Teen Open Studio


The Teen Open Studio program provides a safe and supportive environment for young adults 13-17 to explore a variety of art media with a professional artist. Students may bring their own work in progress, try out the art form of the evening, or just relax and experiment with art materials. Pizza dinner and most materials are provided.  No art experience necessary.
