Neutral Zone does more than simply offer art classes. Here, teens find the opportunity to take full leadership of all of the visual arts programs, projects and collaborations. In addition, teens fuel their creative passions as well as discover and explore college and career paths in the visual arts.
Neutral Zone facilitates an authentic community space where teen artists can come together to design and host regional art shows, take classes, use our studio resources for independent art projects, go on field trips to see galleries and museums, and engage in the community through art. The focus is for teens to develop their skills as creators, innovators and leaders.
The Visual Arts program provides teen artists with a digital lab, silk screening press, and an opportunity to use multiple artistic media in an open studio.
Visual Arts Council (VAC), Wednesdays, 4 – 6 p.m.
VAC guides the visual art programs and hosts special opportunities such as multi-media art shows, guest workshops, gallery tours and opportunities for community service through art projects.
Art Shows: Neutral Zone art shows celebrate all art forms and bring together young artists from around the region to meet, exhibit their work and discover educational and professional opportunities.
