Free Teen Workshop Series

Sign up your teen for a free 6-week summer workshop series exploring the exciting world of street art. The final project created by workshop students will be displayed at the museum.

Teen Art Council

The Elmhurst Art Museum’s Teen Art Council is composed of a group of dedicated and enthusiastic artists, change-makers, and innovative thinkers. These high school students are motivated to amplify their own creative and curious voices. Teens work directly with museum professionals, and learn more about the art of their time, plan their own events and projects, and voice opinions on things they would like to see in their community.

Meetings are held at the museum every Tuesday during the school year at 4pm. To join or learn more please email


“One skill I’ve learned at the Teen Art Council is communication. I’ve been able to work with other kids my age and adults involved in the artworld.” – Hannah Lonergan

“Museums these days are viewed as something to look at, but this museum has a lot of interactive experiences you can be a part of.” – April Fatheree
