Open Art Space: A Free Drop-in Program for LGBTQ+ Teens

Make art. Meet people. Explore ideas. Be yourself.

Open Art Space is a relaxed, weekly, drop-in program for LGBTQ+ high school students and their allies who are interested in thinking about, and making, art in a creative and welcoming environment.

This program is free and open to all high school–age participants. No previous art-making experience is necessary.

Open Art Space meets on Thursdays, from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. at the Lewis B. and Dorothy Cullman Education and Research Building, located at 4 West 54 Street, near Fifth Avenue.

Metrocards, snacks, and supplies will be provided.

Teen Programs are made possible by the Lewis B. and Dorothy Cullman Education and Research Endowment and by the Carroll and Milton Petrie Education Program Endowment. Additional support is provided by the Annual Education Fund.
