Teen Art Council

TAC members at Teen Night, March 2020

The NOMA Teen Art Council (formerly known as the Teen Squad) is a diverse group of creative teens that serve as leaders and ambassadors of the museum. Teen Art Council members meet on a weekly basis throughout the school year to engage in arts immersion programming of all kinds: interviews with contemporary artists, meetings and tours with museum staff, art-making workshops, field trips to city arts organizations, planning and implementation of teen events at the museum, and more!
