A collaboration between the Armory and Learning Works Charter School, artWORKS encourages teens from different backgrounds to express themselves through a combination of media arts and fine arts. We creatively engage teens in improving academic performance, deepening cultural awareness, developing positive social skills, and teaching creative pursuits that matter in school and in the real world.

All artWORKS after-school classes are free for Middle School and High School Students, but registration is required (see form below).


Check back in July 2019 to view and register for Fall 2019 classes.  


Classes are held at artWORKS, 2914 E. Walnut, Pasadena (not at the Armory).
