Using Glass and Fire as Artistic Materials
Wednesdays, February 8–April 19, 4:30–7:00 p.m.
This season, MoMA Teens are teaming up with the crew at UrbanGlass to explore the exciting world of glass blowing and sculpting. Working together in UrbanGlass’ state-of-the-art facility, participants will gain hands-on experience with this flexible, mesmerizing, beautiful, and sometimes dangerous material. Harness the artistic power of fire, learn new creative sculptural and image-making techniques, and take inspiration from MoMA’s collection of modern and contemporary art to push the boundaries of what you thought was possible. Absolutely no prior experience is needed to apply!
Please Note: This course will take place at both MoMA (4 West 54 Street, NY, NY 10019) and the UrbanGlass studios (647 Fulton Street, Brooklyn, NY, 11217).
Behind the Scenes with MoMA's Conservation Team
Thursdays, February 9–April 20, 4:00–6:30 p.m.
Art conservators are equal parts artist, scientist, art historian, and detective. Fighting against time and decay, they repair damaged artworks, discover the hidden secrets of an object’s creation, and use historical techniques and cutting-edge technologies to preserve pieces of art for generations to come. This season, join MoMA Teens in an incredible behind-the-scenes journey as we learn how to examine, repair, and maintain modern and contemporary art. No previous art or conservation experience needed to apply.
In the Making is a free, experimental studio art program for NYC high school students. No previous art-making experience is necessary to apply. Held every summer, In the Making courses offer a wide range of new, hands-on studio- and gallery-based experiences led by contemporary artists—from large-scale sculpture to music production, printmaking, theme-based courses, performance, collaborative installations, digital media, and more. Each season culminates with a Teen Art Show at the Museum.
Apply online. Applications will not be accepted after June 9.
Teens who have completed at least one season of In the Making are eligible to be nominated for the MoMA/MoMA PS1 Cross-Museum Collective program, which offers behind-the-scenes experiences at both of our institutional spaces. For inquiries about In the Making, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call (212) 333-1252.
