Teens for Real
Local teens meet new friends, share ideas, plan events and have fun.
In Fall 2015, a group of teenagers founded a program called Teens for Real (T4R). The group creates opportunities for teenagers in Greater Hartford to connect with Real Art Ways.
Introducing “Mess Hall”
We are excited to announce T4R’s new studio space called Mess Hall. Taking place at Real Art Ways every Friday 3-7 PM during the school year, Mess Hall provides a safe and fun place for students to create art and explore new ideas under the mentorship of professional artists. Every month, Mess Hall has a different creative theme. Students who enroll in Mess Hall will have access to as many Friday workshops as they chose!
To enroll, please submit the attached form either online or in-person at the Real Art Ways cafe (2:30-9 PM). The $25 enrollment fee allows student access for the entire semester and covers all materials. Eligible families may inquire about fee waivers.
