Rubin Teens

Visionary Circle

Keep Growing!

See what a year at the Museum can do for you!  Rubin Teens is a free after-school program for high school students with a strong interest in art or careers in the arts. Participants get a behind the scenes look at how a museum operates, explore career paths in the arts, and gain access to one of the best collections of Himalayan art in the world.

Students are invited to make the museum a place of their own while having exciting opportunities to:

  • Explore the art and culture of Tibet, India, Nepal, China, and beyond 
  • Be creative with art-making workshops that explore silk-screening, Himalayan painting, and more 
  • Get career guidance and work closely with museum curators, artists, and arts professionals 
  • Take regular dynamic NYC trips to explore related cultural treasures and the hottest art events

Rubin Teens meet on Monday afternoons during the school year from 4:00-6:00 p.m.  

Students who participate in Rubin Teens for one year are eligible to design teen events and give tours of the museum to visitors get paid doing it through the Teen Guide Council Program!

This program is full for the 2013 school year.
