Featherstone opens Teen Art Cafe


Featherstone Center for the Arts announced the opening of a new Teen Art Cafe, a destination intended for local Island teens to create and share art.

Charter School student Isabella Morais created the space “to create a space where teenagers can go and create, as well as have the space for open studio time, as well as go to take an occasional class in drawing, painting, sculpting and more, all taught by local artists,” according to the cafe’s web site.

The cafe opened its doors for the first time on Wednesday, Feb. 25. Class and open studio time will be available throughout the week, with an exhibit showcase on Saturday, Feb. 28, at 5 pm for the general public. The cafe will open Friday-Sunday weekly starting Oct. 2, 2015. For a complete list of offerings, schedule, and additional information, visit
