March Break for Teens

We have hands-on workshops across the city for teens this March Break. Our popular sushi making class is back, you can make a zine from start to finish, learn hip hop, practice your photography, or try your sleight-of-hand at a magic class. Hear how professionals design tattoos, do some screen printing, or try one of our many other arts programs. There's something for everyone.
