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.
