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
    *Some aspects of the TAC program have been altered for 2020/21 to comply with local health and safety regulations. This year TAC members will meet weekly on Tuesdays via an online portal.

For more information about TAC please contact Breyer Floyd bfloyd@mcasantabarbara.org.

 

MCASB's 2020-21 Teen Arts Collective is supported in part by the California Arts Council, a state agency. Learn more at www.arts.ca.gov. Any findings, opinions, or conclusions contained herein are not necessarily those of the California Arts Council.
