In the Making is a free, experimental studio art program for NYC high school students from all five boroughs. No previous art-making experience is necessary to apply. Held every spring and 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 here at the Museum. Applications and course descriptions can be found on site 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 or call (212) 333-1252.
