Youth Art Connection (YAC)

The 2020 Youth Art Connection (YAC) program will take place via Zoom and welcomes applications from NYC high school students, with preference given to students who live or attend school in the borough of Queens. YAC participants will view and discuss artwork from the museum’s current exhibitions, create art from home inspired by the collection, meet museum staff, and participate in virtual field trips to outside arts institutions. Participation is free.

The program will take place over 6 sessions between July 8–August 12, 2020. YAC sessions meet once per week, on Wednesdays from 2–4pm. 

To learn more, contact Natalie Beall, Education Specialist, at, or fill out an online application. Only students who submit complete applications will be contacted for a phone interview.
