Youth & Teen Opportunities

The Holland Project offers youth and teen-focused arts programming in addition to our monthly all-ages workshops. This includes crafting camps for kids and families during Washoe County school breaks, a rock-n-roll music instruction summer camp for self-identifying girls and non-binary youth, a semester-long after school meet-up for high school-aged visual artists, as well as open group exhibitions for anyone under 21 and teen-driven arts festivals.
