Teen Arts Council (TAC)

MCASB Teen Arts Council (TAC) is a hands-on program that aims to make contemporary art and culture more accessible to young adults in the Santa Barbara area. Over the course of a school year, TAC members gain experience in the contemporary art world by working with Engagement Department staff to plan, facilitate, promote, and host museum events for high school students. Members of TAC have access to valuable resources including behind-the-scenes access to events, exhibitions, international artists, and MCASB staff.

For the 2016-17 school year, TAC will focus on the field of Social Practice Art. After learning about Social Practice Art from visiting international artists and MCASB staff, participants will incorporate themes of Social Practice into their planning processes, assignments, and a final canTEEN! event for students in Spring 2017.

The museum’s Visiting Artist Series (VAS) pairs artists with local schools, after-school programs, and nonprofit organizations for multi-visit educational workshops that meet the Academic Content Standards for Visual Arts, inspire creativity and critical thinking, and promote meaningful engagement through contemporary art. Visiting Artist Series (VAS) workshops can be held on site at the museum and off-site and will be customized for the needs of each group.
