The North Carolina Museum of Art

Teens

Ever need a little motivation to be creative? Find your inspiration to think, aspire, and create through the North Carolina Museum of Art’s teen programs.

 

Online Art Courses

Students from Asheville to Wilmington can connect with the Museum and teens across the state who share your interests. We offer online courses in Art of Fashion, Art of Game Design, and other topics through the North Carolina Virtual Public School. Visit North Carolina Virtual Public School for descriptions.

Teen Arts Council

The Teen Arts Council is an active and exciting group of local teen leaders interested in art and museums. Teens have a backstage pass to the inner workings of the Museum and work together to develop creative programming for their peers across the state. Application information available in spring 2015. Please contact our teen educator, Alex Vargo, with questions.

Teen Art Exhibitions

Work in Progress
East Building, Level A
Free
Through April 26, 2015

This special exhibition focuses on student work from three of the online courses available through the North Carolina Virtual Public School. From fashion mood boards to film storyboards, students sketch and write to visualize their own process. By connecting art and careers that interest them, students develop 21st-century skills to research, analyze, and communicate. To learn more about the Museum’s online courses, visit Virtual Public School.
