Pre-Teen Learning

SI is pleased to offer artist-led classes for audiences ages 10-12 in partnership with Free Arts NYC. Offered twice annually, these multi-session programs provide a space for pre-teens to explore contemporary art alongside wider themes of identity and empowerment.

SI’s pre-teen programs invite Free Arts NYC students to come to SI for arts enrichment periods during after-school hours. Students explore SI exhibitions through guided conversations and art-making activities and take field trips to surrounding arts organizations and galleries. Taking inspiration from the artworks and artists discussed, students participate in hands-on art-making activities and create culminating projects.
