Teens

We work with teens to foster leadership through creativity, taking a cue from Warhol’s art and practice.

Youth Invasion

Teens take over The Warhol! Planned by and for teens, Youth Invasion is an annual spring celebration that invites young artists, performers, and designers to transform the entire museum with their creative energy. Get involved with planning Youth Invasion as part of the Youth Arts Council, or apply to perform and showcase your talents. Performance applications are accepted in the spring. For more information, please contact teens@warhol.org.

Youth Arts Council

Youth Arts Council is a yearlong leadership program that invites a small team of high school students from across Pittsburgh to go behind the scenes, collaborate with museum staff and artists, create art, and develop public programs and events for other teens. Youth Arts Council participants receive stipends, gain professional experience working in a museum, and learn new skills and techniques. Applications are accepted in the fall. For more information, please contact teens@warhol.org.

Youth Open Studio

Youth Open Studio is a weekly drop-in printmaking workshop for young people of all experience levels. Learn photographic silkscreen printing for the first time, or improve your skills and make your own projects to keep. This free program is presented in collaboration with Artists Image Resource (AIR), an artist-run printmaking facility on Pittsburgh’s historic North Side. Youth Open Studio at AIR is open Wednesdays from 4–8 p.m., for teens ages 13–18. Please check the calendar for the current Youth Open Studio schedule.

LGBTQ+ Youth Prom

The Warhol hosts an annual LGBTQ+ Youth Prom, one of the only LGBTQ+ youth proms in Southwestern Pennsylvania. Prom is often considered a rite of passage and creates memories that last a lifetime. The Warhol’s Youth Prom offers a safe, gender-inclusive space where LGBTQ+ young people can celebrate with dinner, dancing, and artmaking. Prom is open to young people ages 13–20, and it is planned by a youth committee.
