Welcome to Youth Programs at BARN

We welcome youth and families at BARN! All classes are open to teens age 14 and above and we also offer a variety of programs specifically for teens and younger children.  Please read about the many opportunities below. 

Youth Maker Mondays:

We’re excited to offer after-school classes for youth & teens this school year!  Classes run on Monday afternoons in three-week blocks through the school year.  Most are timed to Our February classes (2/7, 2/14 & 2/28) include the following:

Teen Nights: 

We are sorry to report that we have canceled our January Teen Night due to the recent surge in Covid-19 cases.  Thank you for your patience.  We hope to get back to business for our February Teen Night on 2/11.  Please check this page for the most up-to-date information about our events.  

Teen Nights have been growing in popularity!  They are free events that bring teens together for hands-on craft projects & creative outlets.  No pre-registration is required.  Our winter events will be based indoors and all participants must be vaccinated and wear masks throughout the evening (except while eating at a distance from others – did we mention pizza is provided?!)  Teen Nights are held every 2nd Friday from 6-9pm through May – except April which will be the 3rd Friday of the month.  

Teen Council:

The BARN Teen Council is made up of teens who would like to be around other creative people and help support hands-on activities for young people in our community. The Teen Council provides ideas and input so we can make BARN youth & teen events even better!  The group meets for one hour every month and there are additional opportunities to help with one-time or ongoing activities such as our Teen Nights or other youth programs.  To join or get more information, please click here.

Summer Youth Programs: 

We love having kids & teens at BARN for our summer programs!  In 2022 our programs will run for five weeks, from July 11 – August 11.  We’ll announce our full lineup in early March, so check back then to get first dibs on all the great classes!  

More ways to get involved:

In addition to the events above, we have other opportunities for youth to share their knowledge and enthusiasm, engage in our studios and learn from BARN artisans: 

Community Service: Get involved in any of the community service projects at BARN.

Independent Studies/Mentorships: If you are interested in Independent Studies through your local high school, contact your school counselor.

Partnerships: We would love to chat with representatives of schools, youth and community groups on how to connect our programs with yours.
