It's never too early to develop your creativity at MICA's Young People's Studios.

Artistic exploration is among the best ways for kids to build confidence in expressing themselves, learn to solve problems and think critically. Young People's Studios provides a comfortable place where the next great artist can begin to unleash their creative energy.
