All the details


Textiles for Teens is a gallery-based program at the Brooklyn location of the Textile Arts Center. This hands-on class explores students personal artistic interests right in the midst of our Artist in Residence studios, and will provide full access to our dye lab, screen printing facilities, sewing machines, looms, & more. Students will be able to draw inspiration from the six resident artist's and designer's evolving work in fine arts, fashion design, and home textiles, and gain insight into the endless possibilities within the world of textiles.  Check out some photos of our teens!

This program works directly with our very talented, dedicated Artists in Residence. For 9-months, 6 artists and designers work at TAC toward an exhibition, while going through a professional development program. Alongside such artists and designers, our teen students get to observe the professional creative process, develop their own critical dialogue, and receive mentorship.
