Teen Art Council
The NOMA Teen Art Council is a cohort of creative high school students and youth leaders who serve as ambassadors for the museum. Teen Art Council members meet on a weekly basis throughout the school year to plan programming for teen audiences, meet with museum staff, take part in conversations and creative experiences with artworks and artists, and more!
We’re recruiting new members for the 2022-2023 school year!
