Teen CO•OP

The museum's Teen CO•OP gives teens a chance to express their creative ideas and change your experience at the museum. We are high school students from in and around Cleveland, and we like to make and enjoy art. We want to give you something by teens, for teens. Look for us at the art museum throughout the year and around the museum on Second Sundays family days. CO•OP members also work on projects like the teen guide, gallery programming, short videos, and events for other teens. 

Teen Events:

Teen Art Meet-Up: Picture Yourself in the Art

Friday, November 11, 6:30-8:30, Classroom D

Come take a picture with us! Join us as Teen Co-Op hosts an engaging photography experience where we explore photo techniques and artworks in the CMA collection. Create photo props inspired by art. Snap a photo at one of multiple photo booths, and take home photos as keepsakes! Tickets, $5.
