The Walters invites teens to join us after school to strengthen your creative and professional skills, broaden your network of peers, and gain appreciation for cultural differences.

Whether you’re looking for a casual, drop-in program like Teen Lab or want to be more involved, the Walters has a program for you!

Teen Lab

The Teen Lab drop-in program offers teens a space to further develop their creative skills and learn about global cultures. Throughout the Fall and Spring sessions, we will explore different cultures represented in the museum through relevant activities, giveaways, music, and snacks!

Through Our Eyes: Teen Photographers

Develop your photography skills during this eight-week crash course culminating in a group exhibition! Teens will strengthen their creative skills, use DSLR cameras, and learn from an industry professional. This program will take place in January–February 2024.


Teen Advisory Council

Coming Summer 2024, the Teen Advisory Council provides teens with professional experience working on museum projects and programs with a stipend. Gain behind-the-scenes access to museum staff and facilities, share your unique perspective on museum projects, and help develop your own teen program!
