Summer Creative Studio with The Contemporary Austin and AISD

Do you want to connect to a group of curious, thoughtful people expressing themselves through art making? Hoping to broaden your art skills, get feedback on your work, and meet local artists? This is the group for you!

In this 3-week session, you’ll work with a cohort of teens, learning from each other as well as local art educators. You’ll get a kit with top-of-the line art supplies, expert demos, and an outlet to express the ideas and issues important to you. At the end of the program, your art will be included in an exhibition co-presented (virtually or in person) by the district and a major local art museum.

Monday–Thursday: 10A–3P

Friday: Field Trips, Times TBD

O. Henry Middle School: 2610 W 10th St, Austin, TX 78703
Requirements: This program is open to teens ages 14–18. Art-making experience is a plus, and curiosity about contemporary art, ideas, materials, and yourself is required.

Application materials will include an artist statement, as well as a survey about what you would like to learn. YOU shape the session: program coordinators will follow your interests/skills when creating curriculum for the session.
