Fall Studio 2017

Teens 15-18



The Armory’s Art High programs give teens valuable, hands-on, creative experiences. In addition to Art High classes here at the Armory, these opportunities include classes with partner organizations, and classes at Armory satellite facilities. 

With approval, teens 16+ may take certain Armory adult classes. Students work with professional, multi-disciplinary artists who bring their expertise into the classroom. Instruction is concentrated in two areas: visual arts and media arts.

Armory Art High studio classes for 15-18 year olds are tuition-free during the school year. Art High programming is underwritten, in part, by gifts from individual donors and by government, corporate, and private foundation grants. Enrollment is on a first-come, first-served basis. 

There is a nonrefundable $60 registration fee per class. Students must be 15 years old by the first day of class. 

Classes limited to 12 students, allowing for individualized instruction. 
Photography classes limited to 9. 

  • Tuition assistance available.
