Join us for teen programs in design/build and arts administration. Led by Arts + Public Life and offered in partnership with After School Matters, these in depth programs cultivate teens’ creativity, social development, and leadership, while inspiring them to make a positive difference in their community through the arts. Teens work alongside professionals to develop original work using real-world processes. All programs have a community stewardship and civic engagement focus. 

All programs take place at the Arts Incubator, 301 E. Garfield Bvd. Participants are eligible to earn a monetary award.
