For over 13 years, Art Rocks Teens (A.R.T.) has provided FREE art and music classes for 13-18 year-olds  three days a week, after school and all summer long. The program even includes a FREE Rock & Roll Camp that brings indie musicians from some of the northwest’s most notable bands to work with teens to create their own music and perform it on Main Street.

We work hard to provide a safe and creative space for teens to spend their time – and enjoy some snacks! The Teen Art Council is a dedicated group of volunteers ages 13- 18 who brainstorm, plan classes, and sometimes even teach.

While we offer A.R.T. classes and Rock & Roll Camp free of charge, it’s an expensive program that depends on your support. There are many ways to help: Give your time by volunteering during an event, give your gently used musical instruments to the cause, or give a monetary donation to help leverage the funds we ask businesses and foundations for.
