After-School Makers


A new weekly teen art program!

After-School Makers is a supportive studio environment where teens are encouraged and empowered to explore, create, and be inspired. Each Wednesday, makers are introduced to a variety of contemporary art projects and mediums with local professional artists. Working individually or collaboratively each session, makers are challenged to pursue their unique interests and goals. 

Our program is designed for teens, Grades 7-12, who are eager to refine their artistic skills, experiment with new mediums, discuss new ideas, and develop a well-rounded portfolio. All materials provided. Light refreshments included.

Wednesdays, September 18th – October 23rd, 2019 | 3:30 pm - 5:30 pm

The program is FREE – please note space is limited. Registration for individual sessions is required. Please refund your ticket if you are unable to attend.
