Drop-In Workshops for Teens

Drop-In Workshops for Teens

Celebrate Pride Month and join us for Drag 101 with drag queen Pickle!

The Youth Programs team invites teens to join museum educators on the third Friday of every month to be inspired by the museum’s exhibitions and screenings, explore the museum, hang out, and get creative.

Our June workshop is a collaboration with drag queen Pickle! Pickle and friends will give a Drag 101 class that covers the history, theory, and design of drag. We’ll discuss the influence of drag culture in media and drag representation in film. And what drag class would be complete without a performance element? Learn the history of, and how to, vogue!

Meet us Friday, June 16 from 4:30pm to 6:30pm in the Shirley Temple Education Studio on the museum’s Lower Level. Workshops are designed for teens ages 14 and up. Snacks will be provided.

All workshops are free with museum admission and are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Museum admission is free for youth ages 17 and under with advance reservation.

Pickle has served as director of Drag Story Hour Los Angeles for five years. She has collaborated on drag programming with Amazon, Aquarium of the Pacific, The City of West Hollywood, Independent Shakespeare Company, LACMA, LA Music Center, LA Public Library, Flaming Saddles West Hollywood, Tinder, and YouTube. Pickle developed a program called “Shakesqueer,” in which a drag artist teaches Shakespeare to kids. She has appeared in national ad campaigns for Dollar Shave Club and Truvada, and guest starred on Tyler Perry’s Sistas.
