Discounts on Membership

16-17 year olds may apply for a youth membership (with guardian approval) at the discretion of ADX staff.

“Student experiences at ADX have been consistently relevant, engaging and high-impact.  By thinking and working together, this type of learning is transformational – and something you can’t buy from a curriculum catalog.”


– Saskia Dresler, Principal at Arts & Technology High, West Linn-Wilsonville School District



Ages 16-17

Teens aged 16-17 may participate in ADX’s Standard Class programming at the discretion of ADX staff, and with a guardian’s signed waiver on file.

Ages 13-15

Students ages 13-15 are eligible to take Standard Classes with a paying guardian also present. They may also work with a skilled maker in One-on-One Instruction at ADX’s discretion.

Ages 12 & Under

At this time, ADX does not have the capacity to work with youth under the age of 13. As our community grows, we hope to offer programming in the future, so stay tuned!

Any person under the age of 18 interested in membership, classes, One-on-One Instruction, or any other programming at ADX must complete the Youth Participation Application.

*All available programming is hosted at ADX; we do not offer off-site programming at this time.
