We had tons of new teens in our space making beats in the sound booth, creating stencil art, and participating in button-making during last week’s Surge Columbus Ignite event. We met some truly inspiring teens and their families who are interested in creative after-school learning opportunities!
SURGE Columbus is a collaboration between Columbus Museum of Art, Columbus Metropolitan Library, Wexner Center for the Arts, WOSU Public Media, and COSI, and is made possible by a grant from Battelle Memorial Institute. Columbus is one of the few cities in the country to have this kind of innovative collaboration for teens.
Below are some more pictures from last week. Keep an eye out for the Surge Columbus segment on an upcoming episode of WOSU’s Broad & High.
Columbus Museum of Art’s SURGE: public space, Drop-In Studio Time for teens continues every Thursday from 4:00 PM – 8:00 PM. Columbus teens are welcome to join us for this weekly drop-in program that includes pop up events in the Studio and Innovation Lab, experimenting with technology and art supplies, and just hanging out.
Art Speaks. Join the Conversation.
