Teen Programs are designed for students in grades 7 through 12 who want to explore their passion for art outside of school.  Programs offer a variety of museum experiences including in-gallery conversations around original works of art, studio instruction, behind-the-scenes tours, arts career information, and an opportunity to collaborate with other teens who are interested in art.
