Museum Minute: Teen Studio

Do you have an artsy teen at home? Do they need to get out of the house and connect with other artsy teens? The museum is here to help. Every other month, on a Thursday evening, teens ages 13-18 are welcome to Teen Studio. Kristen Bach, local artist, educator and owner of Treehouse Kid and Craft, develops creative and fun projects just for teens.

Happening since 2012, the program has served many teenagers over the years. Every Teen Studio includes pizza from DePalma's Italian Cafe, to ensure that no one is hangry while trying to learn about or make art. The teens then tour the galleries, if the program is based on an exhibition, or visit the collections study room if it involves pulling works from storage for them to view. Finally, they make their own art project to take home. It might be a bold sculpture based on the geometric works of Jane Manus, wearable art inspired by Nick Cave’s Sound Suits, or a multimedia collage that mimics the work of Alabama artist Thornton Dial.

Teen Studio is always free but has limited seats and requires registration. Visit the museum’s website to find out about future Teen Studios and email gmoa-tours@uga.edu to register.
