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 regional arts institutions
  • Workshops and discussions in weekly, after-school meetings
  • Planning and curating a culminating exhibition of TAC participants’ artwork

For more information about TAC please email Sarah Klein at sklein@mcasantabarbara.org.

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.
