Brooks Teen Program

Who are we?

The Brooks Teen Program is an after school program that unites 9-12th graders from across the city under the common interest of visual art and provides teens with real world experience for success in work or college. Members collaborate with Brooks staff to execute a special project such as organizing an exhibition, developing a museum program, or planning an event. Teens also enjoy team building and enrichment through workshops with local artists, gallery activities, and field trips. The program begins in September and ends in April. Members meet two Thursdays per month from 4:30-6:30 p.m. with the exception of one meeting in December.
