credit Teens viewing art at Youth Invasion

Youth programs at The Andy Warhol Museum focus on working with small groups of young people to foster leadership with creative skills and to offer relevant programming to a teen audience. Warhol’s work provides an engaging model for youth that maintains a relevant link to the present. Young people continue to be interested in and influenced by the scene he created, his experimentation with diverse media and disciplines, and his manipulations of pop culture—all vital models of creativity.

Youth Arts Council

The Youth Arts Council plans, organizes, and participates in youth-centered events at the museum.

Youth Invasion

This multi-faceted program features teens’ unique take on Warhol and their creative expressions infusing and energizing the entire museum—its programming, interpretation, and display.

Are you a teen in a band? Are you a dancer? Do you love to sing? If so, we need your talent for this year’s Youth Invasion!

Apply to be a Youth Invasion performer. Applications are due Monday, March 27, 2017, at 5 p.m.

Youth Invasion is Friday, April 28, 2017, 5–10 p.m.

Youth Open Studio

The Youth Open Studio program is a collaboration with The Andy Warhol Museum and Artist Image Resource (AIR), an artist run printmaking facility on Pittsburgh’s historic Northside. Youth Open Studio is open every Wednesday evening during the school year from 5:00 to 8:00. The program is collaboratively staffed by artist educators from AIR and The Warhol. All youth are welcome! Learn photographic silkscreen printing for the first time or improve your printmaking skills.
