Thanks to grant support, most classes for teens 15-18 are only $60. 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.
