The Bunker at PTSA: Guided Open Studio for Artists Ages 13-19


THE BUNKER AT PTSA: Young People Making Stuff! The Bunker is a safe and fun environment for teens and young adults to explore and make art with the support of knowledgeable artist-mentors.


BY DONATION, Pay whatever you can ($5, $10) The Bunker is free-of-charge, though we hope you will donate something to cover the cost of supplies and snacks. :)

Bring your own art, or come empty handed and find something to make. You are welcome as you are. Two professional artists are always on hand, working on their own projects. They will offer demos of cool projects and create alongside you. You can join in and offering support, suggestions when you need them, or leaving you to create at your own pace. You can work in your own headspace, in your own way, surrounded by other artists exploring their own creative path. Mentors are happy to guide you in a project if you’re looking for that.

To help us keep The Bunker running smoothly, participants need to arrive at 7pm and stay until 10pm, and also need to help out with cleanup at the end of the night.

Please fill out the registration form below so we know who you are and when to expect you. We’ll see you at The Bunker!
