Teen Arts Collective (TAC)
MCASB Teen Arts Collective (TAC) is a hands-on program that makes the contemporary art world accessible for Santa Barbara students ages 15-18. Over the course of the program, TAC members develop visual literacy skills, strengthen leadership abilities, and begin cultivating their own creative networks through exposure to practicing artists and arts institutions in the Santa Barbara and Los Angeles areas.
This will be accomplished through:
- Meeting with locally and internationally acclaimed leaders in the arts
- Field trips to local galleries, artists’ studios, and distinguished LA arts institutions
- Workshops and discussions in weekly, after-school meetings
- Planning and curating a culminating exhibition of TAC members’ artwork
For 2019-2020, TAC begins on Tuesday, February 4, 2020 and will meet weekly on Tuesdays from 4 - 6 pm. Applications are due by Sunday, January 25, 2020. Click here for the application.
