Teen Artist Workshops
Teens in 9th to 12th grade can join a rock band, perfect their performance skills, learn sci-fi script-writing skills, and pursue other pop culture passions.
EMP is proud to partner with some of the Northwest's most esteemed institutions including Seattle’s School of Rock and Rain City Rock Camp for Girls.
We've joined forces to provide a number of educational and entertaining Teen Artist Workshops onsite at the museum. Youth can practice hands-on instrumental proficiencies, gain a historic and cultural perspective of music trends, hone their writing skills, and rock out.
