Since 2005 our ongoing Teen Art Programs have offered many teens unique opportunities while participating in a creative social platform.  The environment is rich with peer-to-peer support, skill building, leadership opportunities and so much more.  As they are looking into new ventures, college applications and the job market, these experiences help not only artistically, but in confidence building, self expression and self-identity, learning new ways to approach a project, listening to ideas with respect and non-judgement in a diverse and welcoming community. This is a special program.

 Ongoing Teen Art Classes

OUR STUDIO   A place to explore the arts in whatever way makes sense to you!
Our instructors are professional teaching artists dedicated to supporting students in their creative aspirations. This may look like a form of art therapy, it may look like intense portfolio prep. Some students simply want more time to explore creative mediums. We invite all this and more into our studio....
What do we encourage?......
Diversity and non-judgmental support with a strong emphasis on individuality!
What about college?
There are plenty of young adults who will attest to the support, guidance and resources provided by LAC over 15 + years of programs....we have been a rock in the foundation of college prep and social support for Syracuse area teens.
It's not always about the grades. Sometimes we need to think outside the box, stretch our comfort zone and push to move forward.
And sometimes we need to simply support when stress and anxiety create blocks in our lives and in our creative process.
This is the place to come when you are exploring the arts AND when you are experiencing some fears with creative pursuits.
