The Teaching Artist Training Series (TATS) is a professional development program that supports local BIPOC artists by introducing them to a creative career pathway. The 8-session course focuses on teaching strategies and techniques as well as the design and implementation of hands-on art-making lesson plans. Participants receive a stipend for completing at least 80% of the training, and walk away with the basic tools and resources needed to develop, grow, and sustain their teaching practice with K-5 grade level students.
TATS takes place on Saturdays, July 13–August 31 from 10 am–1 pm in South L.A.

Youth Artlab
The Youth Artlab is designed for students ages 12–15 interested in experimenting with introductory-level digital media and 2-D and 3-D visual art approaches. Students use art as a tool for self-expression and discovery and learn how to create innovative visual compositions inspired by artworks in LACMA’s collection. The Youth Artlab is made possible through a collaboration between LACMA and the Lennox Unified School District’s LEAP Expanded Learning Program and takes place after school on select Wednesdays at Lennox Middle School. 

Teen HubLA 
LACMA’s teen program Teen HubLA provides under-represented students ages 16–18 with meaningful experiences that introduce them to the visual and digital arts using a social justice framework. Throughout the program, students actively engage in dialogue and reflection while using art as a powerful tool for building self-esteem and confidence. With the guidance of LACMA Teaching Artists, students create projects that celebrate their individuality, creativity, and communities. Teen HubLA runs from October 2024 to February 2025 and takes place on Saturday mornings at A C Bilbrew Library located in South L.A.’s Willowbrook neighborhood. 

The Teen Internship Program is made possible through the Aramont Charitable Foundation and Kim and Keith Allen-Niesen

For decades, LACMA’s outreach programming has nurtured visual arts appreciation and literacy through hands-on art-making activities conducted throughout L.A. County. Inspired by LACMA’s collection, workshops are led by trained LACMA Teaching Artists and designed to create positive and enriching art experiences through experimentation with non-traditional materials.
