Teen Art House is a FREE after-school art program that provides youth with a secure and inspiring learning and social environment, where participants have the opportunity to explore a variety of artistic mediums and have the opportunity to work with experienced Teaching Artists on guided art projects. The program offers young people, between the ages 12 and 18, an exciting opportunity to be introduced to a new art medium or explore a theme of relevance to this age group. Participants in last year’s program were able to work with acrylic painting, relief printmaking, oil painting, loom weaving, screen printing, book binding, sewing soft sculptures, geometric colored pencil design, and stop motion animation.
