Middle & High School Students

Inner-City Arts' Visual, Media & Performing Arts Institutes offer self-select after-school and weekend classes to middle and high school students, as well as 4th & 5th graders. Every class, no matter the art form, provides students with a valuable opportunity for creative exploration, performance (sharing work), individual and group study, mentorship with professional teaching artists, 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 middle and high school students, depending on their level of interest and skill in a specific art form.
