The Young Artist Studio
Connect with contemporary artists, university students and other young creatives.
Make work in a variety of media.
The Young Artist Studio offers free hands-on workshops for youth ages 11-21 on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 4-5:30 pm. Open studio at 3:30 for early arrivals!
An inclusive and diverse community, we welcome youth from throughout the metro area who are interested in learning a variety of media and exploring contemporary themes in art. In the Studio we practice the skills and self-efficacy of creative leaders and encourage each other to make great original work. Each year we celebrate with an exhibition of work created in the Studio.
Exhibitions at the CVA inspire the themes, media and cultures explored in the workshops. This year's workshops are listed below:
MSU Denver art education students apprentice in the studio developing curriculum and teaching new media to young artists. Graduates from our apprenticeship program enter successfully into careers in schools, community and arts organizations with experience teaching project based, exploratory units based on primary source exploration. Young artists benefit from instructors enmeshed in contemporary learning theory with expertise in a variety of media.
