Teen Art Council

For teens, by teens

Teen Art Council is a paid arts leadership opportunity for high school students who:

  • collaborate to build a safe space where teens can connect to art, inspire each other, and contribute to a creative community
  • act as ambassadors for Phoenix Art Museum and represent their peers within the Museum
  • meet artists, museum staff, and other creative people
  • explore art and museum careers

Each program year, 15 students from all over the Valley represent the perspective of their peers.

To be eligible, you must:

  • be able to attend weekly meetings (on Wednesday evenings, 5-7 pm) and events such as Teen Night and #Untitled.
  • participate in two Discount Tire Free Family Weekends throughout the year (held the second weekend of each month) for 5 hours each day 
  • be a high school student in good standing
  • have reliable transportation to the Museum

Applications for the 2018-2019 program year are now closed

Teen Art Council program runs from August 22, 2018, through May 22, 2019.
