Our Teen Art Studio is back! Our two-hour weekly sessions offer teens an open, supportive environment to explore their creativity and develop their artistic techniques. Each class will be led by a professional artist from the community. This year’s classes will be held in UVAA’s Imagination Station and feature a variety of media, including printing, drawing, painting, and clay.  Each month features a different medium.  There is no teen studio in the summer season, please check out Summer Art Camps for other art opportunities for teens here.
