Education » In the Community » artWORKS


artWORKS is a collaboration between the Armory, Learning Works Charter School, and Flintridge Center. At artWORKS, we encourage teens from different backgrounds to express themselves through a combination media arts and fine arts. We creatively engage teens to improve academic performance, deepen cultural awareness, develop positive social skills, and teach creative pursuits that matter in school and in the real world.

All artWORKS after-school classes are free, but registration is required (see form below).

Classes are held at artWORKS, 2914 E. Walnut, Pasadena (not at the Armory).
