Summer Studio

Teens participate in the Summer Studio.

Middle and high school students discuss ideas, experiment with materials, and create their own works of art in this week-long summer program.


This past August, students discovered the colorful world of Florine Stettheimer, a modernist painter, designer, poet, and icon of the Jazz Age. They explored the places, spaces, and eccentric characters that inspired her, considered Stettheimer’s unique point of view on society, and experimented with painting, 3-D materials, and more.
