by Bill Davenport August 4, 2011

Outstanding teen education programs at Austin’s Arthouse have earned that org an invitation to the National Convening for Teens in the Arts organized by the Institute of Contemporary Art/Boston (ICA) this month. Arthouse’s Education Coordinator Erin Gentry will accompany Hector Romero and Ashley Love, two of the eighteen teens invited to Boston for the event. Arthouse is in good company: other orgs participating this year include the Andy Warhol Museum, the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art; Marwen, Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego; the Walker Art Center, the Wexner Center for the Arts, Columbus; and the Whitney Museum of American Art. Three programs at Arthouse serve teens: Club Arthouse is a once a week free program for high school students. Young Artists @ Arthouse is a free Saturday morning art program focused on helping students from under-served areas in and around Austin develop their art portfolios and learn more about opportunities in the arts; Advanced Young Artists @ Arthouse pairs more advanced students from YAA with professional or graduate student artist mentors to work on long-term artistic projects.
