Teens

The Jewish Museum offers unique opportunities for teens to engage with the arts. Learn more about and register for after-school and summer classes, the Teen Intern Program, and photography contests here.

Teen Intern Program

The year-long Teen Intern Program offers students entering grades 9 through 12 the opportunity to gain work experience by assisting professional educators in the Museum’s art studio and galleries, while simultaneously exploring art and Jewish culture and developing their own creative interests. Students accepted into the program can fulfill community service hours or internship requirements at their school.

For more information, please call 212.423.3254 or e-mail teenprograms@thejm.org.

High School Video Workshop


Teens participate in the High School Video Workshop.

In this free after-school program, students entering grades 9 – 12 work with a teaching artist to learn the basics of video production, including storyboarding, cinematography, and editing. Using the Museum’s exhibitions as inspiration, students work in small groups to create their own films. No prior experience necessary – beginners are welcome!

For more information, please call 212.423.3254 or e-mail teenprograms@thejm.org.

The High School Video Workshop Series is made possible through the generosity of the Gray Foundation, May and Samuel Rudin Family Foundation, Inc. and the Pamela and Richard Rubinstein Foundation. Additional support is provided through public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with City Council and Council Member Peter Koo.

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.
