ArtWorks is an on-site program for select high school juniors and seniors who have a passion for the visual arts. Consisting of eight weekend meetings, this semester-long experience focuses on developing and enhancing students’ artistic skills while participating in a range of hands-on visual arts enrichment activities. Students have the opportunity to work alongside Museum staff and engage in discussions with guest speakers and artists. Artwork made during this program will be on display at BMoA and afterwards, students tour galleries in Los Angeles for a group field trip.
