Young Artists Workshop for Grades 3–12


Since 1921, Moore College of Art & Design has been a leader in art and design education for youth through its Young Artists Workshop (YAW). Young artists enrolled in YAW grow creatively while developing as artists, thinkers and innovators. Guided by teachers who are working artists and experts in their fields, YAW kids and teens build self-confidence, make lasting friendships and develop strong foundations for creative and technological success.

Be a part of this rich legacy of fun and inspiration! Enroll your child in one or more of our high-quality educational experiences today. YAW offers an array of art and design courses for youth in grades 3–12. Moore’s picturesque campus is located in the heart of Philadelphia on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway and Museum Row, and all classes take place in our modern classrooms, studios and labs, complete with state-of-the-art equipment and technology.
