    I would like more information, specifically about June 16th. I have 2 teenage kids, and we will be visiting the area that week. What age group is this aimed at? My son is 14, my daughter is 17. What will be available for the teens to do? Just t-shirts, something else, or lots of materials? Is this an open-ended project, or is there a specific subject the teens are supposed to work on? Is there an addition fee? The link from the museum calendar is broken.

      Dear Summer,

      Thanks for your interest in the teen workshops! On the 16th, we will be making new media artworks (mostly with digital cameras). We will discuss different aspects of selected artworks in the galleries. Following this, participants will have time to develop an original work of their own which we will discuss and view at the end of the session. The theme/specific subject is identity and narrative. The program is free with general admission, and the teens will have the opportunity to view/download their projects from Flickr.
