Teen Studio Program

Center for Community Arts is excited to announce two rigorous 2020 summer intensive opportunities for teens ages 14-18. Each program lasts 2 weeks and is taught by professional teaching artists. Registration opens May 13.

Teen Studio Program in Visual Art, Sculpture, or Digital Media

July 20-31, 2020

Center for Community Arts Teen Studio Program offers emerging artists the opportunity to explore their creative expression and skill while creating new work. Our robust program includes workshops, lectures, student presentations, guided instruction, field trips, and collaboration with peers and mentors. Network and make new friends while exploring ideas and building portfolio pieces. Mentorship and lectures will be provided by professional artists working in the medium. At the end of the two-weeks, the program will culminate with a gallery showcase for family and friends.

Showcases will take from 5:30 pm-7:00 pm in the rehearsal room at Shadelands Art Center. Participants will also be eligible to submit artwork from the program for a 3-month long curated show in the lobby at Shadelands.

Registration for all 3 tracks opens May 13, 2020. Check back to this page for registration links.
