ACX Teens

ACX Teens is a unique art and design program tailored just for teens in grades 9 through 12.

It’s never too early to begin designing your future. In this program, we don’t teach students how to be creative. Rather, we help students strengthen their creativity, build their confidence and discover their unique voice.

Our faculty of professional artists and designers share their personal stories and real-world experiences. They challenge students to become better risk-takers by playing to their strengths and encouraging them to tackle their weaknesses.  

In turn, students learn the creative process and how to reach beyond the obvious.
