Follow along with the TAC as we prepare for Teen Day @noma_teens on Instagram
Teen Day was planned by NOMA’s Teen Art Council, a group of New Orleans High School students who serve as youth ambassadors for the museum. TAC members meet weekly throughout the school year to make meaning through art and art-making, learn about careers in the arts, and create resources, programs, and experiences for their peers.
Ask us any questions or request to join the “interested in applying” list by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or a DM to @noma_teens
