The MTS Summer Research Intensive is underway with a whole new team of youth leaders. Stay tuned to the blog for updates on our progress.

Every Thursday and every other Tuesday from 2:00-5:00pm.
Meeting Dates: July 12, 17, 19, 26, 31; August 2, 9, 14, 16

Each meeting will be at a different Museum.  Check our schedule online for up-to-date meeting locations. We will email and text the location each week.
July 19: Whitney Museum
Future meeting locations TBA

In addition to some art-making, some leadership development activities, and some writing prompts, we’ll be working on two big projects:
1) Mini-Investigation: Working alone or with a partner, you’ll come up with a question you want to answer about teens and museums and then develop a mini research and design project.
2) Event Planning: We’ll be planning a September event at the Frick Museum to follow up on our successful programs at the Guggenheim and New Museums.
3) Community-building: We will continue to develop strategies to support our real and online social communities to support youth arts participation in NYC.
