Teens: Studio Art Program

The Studio Art Program—formerly known as the Gallery/Studio Program—offers fun and challenging art-making classes for ages 6 to 96. Be inspired by professional teaching artists, discuss artworks in our exhibitions and collections, develop skills and techniques, and create your own art using new and traditional materials. Each semester ends with a student exhibition in our Education Gallery!

All levels of experience are welcome. 

See our teen programs below. We also offer classes for kids and adults. Questions? Email us at

Painting and Mixed Media: Beyond the Brush
Saturdays, 1:30–3:30 pm

Take your painting skills to the next level and explore techniques that add texture and embellishments to your art. Learn the basics of painting with acrylics, then experiment with paint markers and oil sticks in brush-free paintings. See how artists in Giants: Art from the Dean Collection of Swizz Beatz and Alicia Keys choose materials that add special meaning to their work, and create paintings with your own message to the world.
