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 Sundays throughout the year (held on the second Sunday 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 2019-2020 program year are no longer open. Applications were due by Wednesday, May 1.

Teen Art Council program runs from August 2019 through May 2020.
