Teen Programs give New York City high school students the opportunity to discuss art critically, think creatively, and make art with contemporary artists, educators, and their peers. 

Youth Insights Artists programs bring teens together with contemporary artists, providing opportunities to work collaboratively, discuss art critically, and think creatively. YI Artists make art inspired by this exchange.
