Fleisher offers a special after school experience for young people ages 13-18 in our Teen Lounge, a free, drop-in after school program focused on the visual arts. Here, teens work collaboratively with teaching artists and their peers on projects that will develop their artistic skills, allow them to experiment with new media and artistic techniques, and build confidence in their own creative expression.
Teen participants describe the Teen Lounge as a "stress-free," "friendly" environment, where they can "meet people from lots of different backgrounds and make friends."
What kind of projects do the students work on? With guidance from Fleisher 's Teen Lounge Monitor, Teens develop their own creative program by choosing the artists with whom they wish to work. Projects are often collaborative and rely on a strong group dynamic, allowing teens to explore media ranging from clay, painting, and silkscreen to stop motion animation and darkroom photography. As one teen participant put it, the Teen Lounge "twists your view on art - I had no idea what art could be before I came here!"
As the Teen Lounge is a drop-in program, registration is not required.
