Every workshop, no matter the art form, provides students with a valuable opportunity for creative exploration, performance, individual and group study, connections to mentorship opportunities, and career-development support.

The Visual, Media & Performing Arts Institutes offer specialized, in-depth workshops led by professional teaching artists. These classes present a variety of opportunities for high school students, depending on their level of interest and skill in a specific art form.
