To attend this session, please RSVP using the form below. Participants must be ages 14-18. Please note that for your safety, capacity for this event is extremely limited. Once capacity it met, you will have the opportunity to add yourself to a wait list. You will be contacted if a spot opens up.

About Project Identity: Teen Art Studio

Young people today are experiencing more stress than ever before with the everyday pressures of school, family, and social life. COVID-19 brought with it a whole new set of stressors, including adjusting to online learning, boredom, and isolating from friends. It is our goal with these free and creative sessions to provide a safe space for teens to connect, communicate, and create with peers who share interests.
