Teens are not just an audience for The Warhol—they are an essential part of our staff. Student Assistants are youth apprentices who are paid to work in the museum’s education and outreach programs, including Youth Open Studio at Artists Image Resource. They gain real world skills, engage with a creative community, and learn about new artistic processes and approaches.
