New Art in the Neighborhood

An intensive art training program for talented teen artists.


Since 1995, CAM’s New Art in the Neighborhood program has sought to nourish the creative minds of our city’s talented young artists. Every Saturday during the school year, up to 20 teens, selected through a competitive application process, come to CAM for pre-professional-level art instruction with educational staff and visiting artists. This intensive approach presents participating students with opportunities and resources that are not available in their regular school curriculum. This nationally-acclaimed program challenges students to adapt to the materials used at the forefront of art today, and it enables them to build a portfolio of work they can use to apply to college or employment.
