Teen Arts Council 2022–23

The NCMA Teen Arts Council meets virtually on Wednesday afternoons and in person on-site at the NCMA the first Saturday of every month. Teen Arts Council members host monthly teen sketching meetups in the galleries, plan teen takeovers, help plan teen art exhibitions, and learn about the world of museum careers.

Submit an online application August 1 through September 1. We will then invite selected applicants for an interview with Museum staff and current TAC members.

Apply today and share with your friends!

Please contact Angela Lombardi, director of outreach and audience engagement, at angela.lombardi@ncdcr.gov for more information.


Learn new techniques and processes by participating in workshops led by professional writers, artists, and filmmakers.

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.

Call for Art

Teens, Inspired: Multifaceted

How do you show up in the world? Create an artwork that draws inspiration from at least three works of art from the different collections on display at the NCMA.

Are you armored yet connected like El Anatsui’s Lines That Link Humanity? Are you tranquil and layered, a la Monet’s The Cliff, Étretat, Sunset? Are you iconic and bold, like one of the women in Mickalene Thomas’s Three Graces: Les Trois Femmes Noires? Show us how you are multifaceted!

Deadline: Tuesday, March 21
