Education Programs

OVERVIEW

Taller’s Art Education Programs for Children and Youth promote cultural understanding and community engagement through a focus on Puerto Rican and Latinx art, history, and culture. We offer after-school programs during the school year, as well as a summer camp.

Our young artists engage with the critical issues that shape their lives and their communities through creative expression and art-making under the guidance of experienced teaching artists and educators. We help kids succeed in school and life, teaching them valuable lessons about resilience, responsibility, and mutual respect.


CULTURAL EXPLORATION PROGRAM

For elementary and middle school students The Cultural Exploration Program (CEP) is an after-school program that introduces kids to fundamental skills and techniques in drawing, painting, sculpture, dance, photography, drama, and more. An experienced team of bilingual artists, tutors, and staff offer a safe and nurturing environment for kids to develop their creativity, build their self-esteem, and strengthen their academic skill set.

Funding assistance and special rates are available. Proof of income is required to determine individual fees. Extended Care (Monday-Friday 3 pm-6 pm) is available upon request for a small fee. Funding is available for those who qualify through Child Care Works (CCW). We are a certified child care center for children in kindergarten through middle school.

YOUTH ARTIST PROGRAM

For high school students, The Youth Artist Program (YAP) is an after-school program that equips youth with the tools to thrive in today’s creative economy. This program offers the resources and guidance young artists need to explore their personal and cultural identities and express their creative vision. Youth Artists create a portfolio that can be used for entrance into an art school or respective program.
