Teen Artist Council 2023
Join the Teen Artist Council! The Teen Artist Council gathers and engages young people interested in creating teen-centric art programs. This will include selecting candidates to speak on a Careers in the Arts Panel series in Winter 2023, curating a gallery exhibition at PAC in April 2023, and leading select public programs. This group will meet the second Saturday of the month and the last Wednesday of the month, in a hybrid capacity. This is a program where teens interested in art can communicate, learn, and enjoy the processes of creative expression. This program will be overseen by the PAC professional staff and guest teaching artists, and participants are accepted on a rolling basis through 2022!
In addition to the Teen Artist Council, Pelham Art Center is hosting Free Open Studios for Teens (materials are provided!) these are happening Fridays, 3:30-5:3oPM and restart the last Friday of January 2023
