Art Center Teen Leadership

Looking for an art-focused leadership opportunity next school year? We are looking for high-school aged teens to join our group of youth, Art Center Teen (ACT) Leadership. ACT Leadership assists in producing programming that connects teenagers to art and artists. Help us plan our next teen only event, make and exhibit art, learn about art careers, gain leadership skills, make friends from different schools, and earn service hours along the way. ACT Leadership is a year-long commitment. Meetings take place twice a month, typically on a weekday at 4:30 p.m. and one weekend day. Meetings and workshops will be both virtual and in-person.  

Links to the 2022-23 school year applications are below. Staff will review all applications and accept 20 teens into the program. Applications are due by August 5. Acceptances will be sent out in August.
