Teen Intern Program

Students entering grades 9 through 12 in the fall of 2020 are invited to apply for this year-long program.

Accepted students can fulfill community service hours or internship requirements for their schools. Space is limited (program is competitive) and students must commit to all training sessions.

Applications due March 16, 2020.

Summer Studio 2019: Artists and Inspiration

Middle and high school students discuss ideas, experiment with materials, and create their own works of art in this week-long summer program.

Middle School Session
August 12 – 16
10:30 am – 12:30 pm

High School Session
August 12 - 16
1:30 pm – 5 pm

Artists find inspiration in all kinds of places – in the work of other artists, in history, and across disciplines.

How do artists influence or change their environments? What kinds of objects, images, and sounds are part of this process?

Immerse yourself in these ideas as we explore creating 3D models, collages, and prints inspired by the exhibition Leonard Cohen: A Crack in Everything.
