The Art Connection

As Pittsburgh’s premier art program for students in grades 5 through 9, The Art Connection is an 18-week that mashes up art appreciation with in-depth studio instruction. The program runs from October to March each year and closes with a student exhibition in the spring.


See worlds captured by filmmakers near and far. Enjoy a family-friendly movie matinee at the Carnegie International cinematheque.

Summer Camps for Kids

Weeklong half- and full-day camps for kids ages 4 through 13, with additional programs available for preschoolers and high school students.

Tam O’Shanter Drawing Sessions

These creative sessions are for those who draw and for those who don’t. Explore contemporary art through improvised forms of drawing with artists and organizers of the Carnegie International. Sketching, doodling, cartooning, mapping, writing, and marking are among the many modes that will bring us together.
