Teen Art Classes Begin October 2

The Armory's Art High studio art classes for teens allow for more in-depth investigations of traditional methods, digital mediums, and contemporary art ideas—many of which emphasize AP art standards. At a White House ceremony in 2015, First Lady Michelle Obama honored the Armory's Art High program as among the best afterschool art programs for teens in the nation.

We have an array of challenging and engaging classes in traditional and media arts, include painting, silkscreening, photography, natural dyeing, animation, and much more. Thanks to grants and individual donations, Armory Art High classes for 15-18 year olds are only $60. Scroll down to learn more.
