Teen Arts Council
Teen Arts Council (TAC) is a group of arts-minded teens who serve as ambassadors and advisors in designing and implementing programs by teens for teens. TAC members meet twice a month during the school year and receive behind-the-scenes Museum experiences, free arts-related workshops, and a creative and supportive arts community.
The Teen Assistant program is an employment and mentoring opportunity for St. Louis area teens. Teen Assistants get real work experience while also learning important life skills like cooperation, time management, and problem solving. As paid part-time employees of the Saint Louis Art Museum, Teen Assistants work closely with staff members on a wide range of programs and events.
