Teen Art Studios (TAS) is a free program that provides a diverse, challenging and productive environment for young artists.
Every Friday night the Gage Alhadeff Studio is transformed into a drop-in art center for teen artists and on Saturdays, Teen Art Studios sets up in The 2100 Building in Rainier Valley!
Every month a different professional artist teaches a new art form, including cartooning, figure drawing, mixed media and more. You receive focused instruction and get the chance to explore a range of different mediums and skills. Refreshments provided. Scroll down for more info.

FRIDAY NIGHTS ON CAPITOL HILL
Practice the balance needed to control the nature of water and paint. Mastering brush techniques and concentration is key to experimenting with the translucency and vibrancy of watercolor. Construct and draw still-life structures with intricate patterns and designs, and then use color to transform your composition.
SATURDAY NIGHTS IN RAINIER VALLEY
REDUCTIVE BLOCK PRINTING
Use reduction printmaking, a technique where you cut away the drawn image, to create multicolor prints. Learn to reduce your image area for each color by planning a repetitive process for your carving, and how to register your images for a perfect application of different colors.
