Art Venues in Philly & The 'Burbs

Whether your tween or teen is just learning to express themselves or super-talented teens interested in pursuing creativity as a career, local art museums and centers offer classes and workshops to encourage artistic growth.


Fabric Workshop and Museum
In addition to teen workshops, the high-school apprentice-training program lets kids learn from the pros and design their own hand-screenprinted textiles while boosting entrepreneurial and collaborative skills.

Samuel S. Fleisher Art Memorial
Open to ages 5-18, the Saturday Young Artists Program offers courses in an array of media, from digital photography, silkscreen and printmaking to fiber arts, drawing & painting and sculpture. Concurrent adult classes allow parents to tap into their creativity, too.

Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts
Saturday classes, week-long summer intensives and pre-college programs give high schoolers the opportunity to build a portfolio and hone their talent with guidance from faculty.

The Teen Sketch Club — open to Philadelphia public-school students — preps kids for a career in visual or graphic arts while they explore architecture, contour drawing, landscape and the human figure.
