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.
