For Students: Lead With the Arts

Oct. 16 through May 1, held every Thursday afternoon from 3:30 to 5:30 at the Albuquerque Museum of Art and History

Do you love art?

Are you conscious of the world’s limited resources and passionate about recycling?

Do you want to work with an imaginative local artist to develop your artistic skills and create an exhibit with like minded teens to be featured in the renowned Albuquerque Museum?



Lead with the Arts is a free, collaborative after-school program for high school students. Twelve students and a local artist this year will form a partnership to create a powerful, new voice in the renowned Albuquerque Museum. Students will work with Cynthia Cook, a native Burqueña and internationally recognized artist. Cynthia is known for her transformative skills with “trash” materials, handmade and natural, used in the creation of hauntingly beautiful mixed media assemblages. Cynthia’s unique perspective will engage students’ individuality and creativity while recognizing the power of art. During the program, the students, along with Cynthia, will envision, plan, design, create, and install a completely original exhibit to be showcased in the museum. Lead with the Arts starts Oct. 16 and will run through May 1, held every Thursday afternoon from 3:30 to 5:30 at the Albuquerque Museum of Art and History. Applications are due Monday, October 6.
