The teen visual arts program will help artists build confidence in themselves as a maker and as an individual. They will master a range of tools, materials, and techniques, while studying with renowned faculty in our facilities, and forging the kind of friendships and memories that last a lifetime.


The Armory’s new daily structure provides each student with a broader experience and skill set.
