Textiles for Tweens (ages 11-14) is a gallery-based program at the Brooklyn location of the Textile Arts Center. This hands-on class explores students personal artistic interests 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 eight 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.

Snack and homework is from 3-4pm. Class starts at 4pm

Our Residency Program

When we are able to be in our Brooklyn Studio our Textiles for Tweens program works directly with our very talented, dedicated Artists in Residence. For 9 months, 8 artists and designers work at TAC toward an exhibition, while going through a professional development program. Alongside such artists and designers, our tween students get to observe the professional creative process, develop their own critical dialogue, and receive mentorship.
