Teen Arts Academy
Teen Arts Academy at PSAM gives high school students of the Coachella Valley the opportunity to discuss art critically, think creatively, and make art alongside contemporary artists and professional educators while working collaboratively with their peers as they investigate creative pathways throughout the Coachella Valley and beyond.
Through individual drop-in workshops, teens will interact with working artists and museum professionals, engage in arts making activities, and expand their thinking about what art is, what it means in society, and how it contributes to a greater sense of community.
