IntuiTeens 2024

Program Overview

Are you curious, creative and socially engaged? Are you looking for something to do this summer? Intuit is the place for you! The IntuiTeens program is a unique opportunity to meet teens from across the city, explore your creativity and celebrate the power of self-taught art. 

IntuiTeens will provide guidance and mentorship in community engagement, museum education, arts teaching and so much more! The program will meet for five weeks from July 9 to August 8, 2024. Eligible applicants are between 15–18 years old and do not need previous arts experience to apply. 

Sessions will be held on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 12–4 p.m. at Chicago Arts Partnerships in Education (CAPE) located at 1010 W. 35th Street, Suite 697.  

*Please note: Intuit is temporarily closed for renovation and will reopen in early 2025. All 2024 programs and events will take place offsite at partnering venues. 

As an IntuiTeen, you will:

  • Grow leadership skills through creating engagement opportunities for teens 
  • Develop art-making skills and expand your creative practice 
  • Collaborate with local teens, professional artists and community organizations 
  • Gain hands-on experience in community arts teaching and nonprofit work 
  • Explore Chicago art museums, galleries, artist studios and community spaces  
  • Receive a stipend for the summer 

All IntuiTeens help fulfill the museum’s mission to champion the diverse voices of self-taught art. Each IntuiTeen will explore what engaging with outsider art means on their own terms. You’ll make something for your own enjoyment and your own expression! 


To apply for IntuiTeens, please complete this application by Sunday, May 18.
