Dynamic Arts

Expanding on last year’s popular Art in the Field program, Dynamic Arts offers high school students an opportunity to develop their unique artistic voices through specialized art-making activities, studio visits with working artists, gallery and museum tours, critical discussion, creative analysis, and reflection.

Students will join this program as a cohort, fostering camaraderie and dialogue amongst participants. All teens seeking more exposure to art or an opportunity to grow their practice are encouraged to apply.

The Dynamic Arts program will be divided into two sessions—fall and spring. Each session will consist of approximately ten sessions. Students in either session are required to participate in 80% of the scheduled events in their session. Transportation cost assistance is available.

Session I Dates: 10/4/23–1/24/24
Session II Dates: 2/7/24–5/22/24
2024–2025 Session Dates Coming Soon!

Scholarship Opportunity

We are offering scholarships of $1,000 for teens with a high level of participation in the program. Scholarships may be used for tuition, travel, or other activities related to their future goals. For more information about the program or scholarships, please email
