Young Artist Programs
Teen Studio Intensive
This program is for talented high school students with a strong interest in the visual arts. Students have the opportunity to develop their art-making skills through intense professional instruction in a serious learning environment. The program is selective, and teens have to apply. They meet twice a week after school from September-April of each school year. There is no tuition for this studio intensive — it’s supported by generous donors.
The first group of teens in this program named themselves “Bee Nation” and that name has stuck. Each year, they plan and install at least one group exhibition in a public space.
Some of them use this time to develop a portfolio for college submission; others use it to explore art-making as a career option.
