What does the TAC do? How do I know if it’s for me?
Are you interested in learning about art through an encyclopedic collection spanning the centuries and continents? Are you interested in working with contemporary artists and museum professionals from New Orleans and beyond? Are you interested in designing programs and experiences for youth in your community? As a TAC member, you’ll not only gain invaluable professional experience and exposure to creative careers in museums and the arts, you’ll develop as a creative thinker and leader.
When does the Teen Art Council meet?
The TAC meets weekly on Thursday evenings, October through May and for select field trips and outings on other days. Due to Covid-19, TAC’s 2020-2021 year will adopt a hybrid model consisting of both [socially distant and masked] in-person and virtual meetings.
Who should apply?
Creative New Orleans high school students of all kinds! The TAC is open to students from a variety of school settings including public, charter, private and homeschool. We deeply value, celebrate and support all ranges of experiences, backgrounds, and perspectives. Teens who are interested in developing skills relating to community engagement, visual art, creative careers, and the art and museum fields are encouraged to apply.
Please note that the Teen Art Council is year-long commitment. Members meet weekly on Thursday evenings, October through May. TAC members can submit meetings and events for volunteer hours.
