    • In partnership with the Queens Library, the Queens Museum’s New New Yorkers program offers free multilingual classes to meet the needs of adult immigrant communities in Queens.

      Broadening horizons and teaching valuable life skills through the arts, New New Yorkers offers adult immigrants the opportunity to interact closely with accomplished professional artists and engage with their innovative work. The program provides opportunities for personal creative expression through rigorous art courses, exhibitions and participation in cultural festivals. It also supports student-led initiatives at the Queens Museum.

      Courses emphasize the arts, technology and English language acquisition, provided at no cost, in a variety of languages. While offerings are most often in Spanish, Mandarin and Korean, past workshops have included Arabic, Bengali, Croatian, Hindi, Nepali, Persian, Portuguese and Tibetan, with more to come.

      Subjects have included:

      • painting
      • book making
      • crafts
      • photography
      • video editing
      • performance
      • graphic design
      • web design
      • computer literacy
      • arts literacy
      • English for speakers of other languages

      Work is experimental and courses are seasonal and always evolving, so the best way to get the latest news and course announcements is to join the New New Yorkers mailing list.
