Learn more about Lead with the Arts, the museum’s free, collaborative after-school program for high school students.

Lead with the Arts is a free after school program offered by the Albuquerque Museum for students ages 15-17. The program provides a dynamic learning environment where teens work collaboratively with their peers and local artists to create a group work for display in the Museum. They also spend time exploring art together in the Museum and art spaces around Albuquerque and they see behind the scenes to understand how museums work.

Check out this great 2014 Lead with the Arts video produced by Brian BolmanBrian has been on the volunteer committee for Shaken Not Stirred for four years, benefitting the Lead with Arts Program at the Museum. This time, students will work with Cynthia Cook, a native Burqueña and internationally recognized artist. Cynthia is known for her transformative skills with “trash” materials, handmade and natural, used in the creation of hauntingly beautiful mixed media assemblages. Cynthia’s unique perspective will engage students’ individuality and creativity while recognizing the power of art. During the program, the students, along with Cynthia, will envision, plan, design, create, and install a completely original exhibit to be showcased in the museum.

Lead with the Arts starts Oct. 16, 2014 and will run through May 1, 2015, held every Thursday afternoon from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. at the Albuquerque Museum.
