Youth Art Activities at the APK: Home

The youth activity program at the Alaska State Library, Archives, and Museum provides young people with opportunities to work with professional artists to learn artistic techniques and engage with art, history, and the collections of the Library, Archives, and Museum. These activities are sponsored by the Friends of the Alaska State Library, Archives, and Museum and are partially funded by the citizens of the City and Borough of Juneau through sales tax revenues.

Notice

The youth art activity program is suspended while the Alaska State Library, Archives, and Museum building is closed.

Registration form

If you want to save yourself a few minutes on the day of the workshop, you can print and fill in this form at home. This form is good for the 2019-2020 school year.

What to expect

Students should be prepared to participate for the full duration of the workshop unless it is designated as a drop-in activity. Participants should wear clothing that can get messy.

Parents are not required to stay for the activity, but should use their best judgment about whether their child needs extra support to be successful. The artists, staff, and volunteers of the youth activity program strive to make each workshop a positive experience for all skill levels, but if you have concerns about your child's ability, please contact Claire to discuss.
