What's Available for Teens?

The Worcester Art Museum's intensive classes for youth ages 14-17 provide time to develop skills, create a portfolio-appropriate artwork, and share ideas with other like-minded students. Teen classes include group critiques, socializing, and break time. They also offer a great opportunity for college-bound artists, students looking to build their portfolios, or just have some creative fun. All class materials are provided.

Tips for Picking the Right Class

  • Consider your teen's objectives when selecting a class. Classes can be structured to either allow for more independent study, to offer more guided instruction, or be a mix of both.
  • Review class offerings with your teen to ensure the class aligns with his/her interests and/or college requirements.
  • Learn more about our instructors.
  • Visit the Museum in advance of classes to familiarize your child with the Museum.
  • Be sure to register in advance to ensure your spot. Please note, classes will be cancelled if minimum enrollment is not met.

If you need assistance selecting a class, please call 508.793.4333 or email us at for a personal consultation. We would be happy to assist.
