Teen Programs

Teen Programs

The Contemporary Young Adults (C-YA) program at the CAC provides a yearlong, arts focused experience to a select group of students. This program welcomes teens to explore, create and discuss contemporary art through hands on workshops, gallery tours and a large, student planned event for other teens in the community.

Accepted applicants meet regularly once a month. Each meeting will include two parts: a private workshop with a local artist and a student led planning committee focusing on promoting teen involvement at the CAC. Dinner will be provided at all monthly meetings.

Applicants must be enrolled in high school, or home-schooled and between the ages of 14-18 years old.

The CAC is now accepting C-YA applications for the 2023-24 school year. The deadline to apply is June 19. Follow the Application Form Link below for more details.
