A young person making art

The Art Connection

Carnegie Museum of Art’s legacy of fostering creative inquiry and playful exploration continues as The Art Connection program enters its 94th year! Students will develop their own creative voices and visions with the help of our teaching artists and respond to the themes of Is it morning for you yet?, the 58th Carnegie International. The Art Connection emphasizes and strengthens the connections between art-making, everyday life experiences, and artworks found at Carnegie Museum of Art. The Art Connection activates each student’s self-expression and cultural connection to foster creative problem-solving and visual literacy.

Tuition: $350 for 18 classes ($320 for members). Scholarships available. All materials included.
