Teen Arts Council (TAC)
MCASB Teen Arts Council (TAC) is a hands-on program that makes the contemporary art world more accessible for Santa Barbara students ages 15 to 18. Over the course of six months, 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 is accomplished through:
- Meeting with locally and internationally acclaimed leaders in the arts
- Field trips to local artists’ studios and distinguished LA arts institutions
- Workshops and discussions in weekly, after-school meetings
- Hosting an annual summer kick-off party, canTEEN!
For 2018, TAC begins on Tuesday, February 6 and will meet weekly on Tuesdays from 4 - 6 pm.

Visiting Artist Series (VAS)
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.
