NO LONGER BORED for CHILDREN & FAMILIES

No Longer Bored is a program designed for children and families to discover and explore NLE art exhibition though activities centered on inquiry, reflection, creativity and participation.  We want children and families to explore the exhibition and develop an appreciation for art together. 

TOURS FOR SCHOOLS & AFTER-SCHOOL PROGRAMS

No Longer Bored for Schools and After School Programs is a program for groups aged K-12 designed and lead by NLE educational staff.  Each exhibition is site specific; the art in the exhibition directly connects to the space and the surrounding neighborhood. 

Y.DOT : YOUTH DOCENT PROGRAM

Y.Dot is an educational and professional experience with contemporary art for high school students. The program trains teens to design, lead their own tours of the exhibition to their families, friends and visitors. Known as "Docents", teens also work as part of the organization, attend workshops, and visit other exhibitions and artist studios. This paid 16-week program fosters life and professional skills. 

TEENS CURATE TEENS
