It is the mission of the Taos Arts Club, Teen Art Studio to use art as a vehicle for positive change in the lives of today’s youth. The Taos Arts Club, Teen Art Studio combines both art instruction and life skills education.

Activities help the youth in our community come into a greater awareness of their intellectual being through self- expression and creative reasoning. Youth are encouraged to make healthy life choices for their futures while at the same time feeling a sense of community.

Many of the area youth come from disadvantaged situations due to a complex variety of social and economic factors. The Artistic Human and Comparative Animal Anatomy program strives to fill a void in youth art education where there is a lack of access to quality art instruction and art studio opportunities.


The Taos Arts Club, Teen Art Studio aspires to foster the intellectual, creative and emotional development of youth through the love of art at all levels of age and ability. 

Reflection, imagination, and the realization of possibilities extend beyond the studio and are core elements in the success of this program. Activities reinforce the lifelong practices of persistence and self-discipline, critical thinking, courage and risk-taking. 

Furthermore, it is the aim of the Taos Arts Club, Teen Art Studio to create and harbor an art environment that develops confident, technically skilled, creative artisans who have a life long passion and love for the arts.
