Teen Art Council

Teen Art Council is a group of 15 high school students who meet at the Museum weekly to plan and promote teen-centered events and projects (including Teen Night); meet with staff, local artists, and other presenters; participate in hands-on art-making; and get a behind the scenes view of how a museum runs. Their mission is to create a welcoming and comfortable environment for all teens to connect to works of art here. Best of all, Teen Art Council members are paid for their contributions.
