American Folk Art Museum Offers Free Summer Art Program for Queens High School Students

Students can explore art creation and careers through hands-on activities.


The Youth Art Connection program takes place at the American Folk Art Museum’s Self Taught Genius Gallery and administrative offices in Long Island City, Queens, and welcomes applications from high school students residing or attending school in Queens. Participating students will explore folk and self-taught art and learn about careers in the arts through a variety of engaging activities.

YAC participants will view and discuss the museum’s current exhibitions, create art inspired by the collection, go behind the scenes at the museum, and visit other New York City galleries, museums, and arts organizations. Participation is free and includes a MetroCard and art supplies.

YAC meets on Wednesdays from 11am-4pm and runs July 10-Aug. 21. Students must be able to travel on the subway independently and commit to the full session. The deadline for applications is June 10.



To learn more or for an application, please contact Natalie Beall, education specialist, at [email protected] or fill out an online application here.

Students who submit complete applications will be contacted for a phone interview before being accepted into the program.
