The Saint Louis Art Museum Teen Arts Council (TAC) is built upon the philosophy that teens are integral in the design and implementation of teen programs at the Saint Louis Art Museum. The mission of SLAM's Teen Arts Council is to be an active, creative, and influential voice in both the Art Museum and in the greater Saint Louis community.

TAC members are exposed to many facets of the Art Museum including our collection and exhibitions. The TAC plans public events aimed towards teens in order to build a bigger and greater teen audience at SLAM. In addition to planning and leading tours TAC members get to participate in classes and workshops at the Art Museum. 

Want to Join the Teen Arts Council?

SLAM Teen Arts Council meets on Wednesdays after school starting in October through May. TAC Members plan teen programs each school year. Some programs are open to all teens including non TAC members. TAC members also enjoy art-related workshops and activities, at no cost to them!

To apply for TAC teens must be in good academic standing and between the ages of 14 to 18 years old. 

What's required?

Members will begin regular meetings in October 2015 and close the year by hosting a juried teen art exhibition in late May. As the yearly cycle ends, helping nominate the next group and planning activities for the coming year will be an important task. Future members will begin in October and remain active until the end of each school year. TAC membership may be renewed based on performance during the previous year.

  • TAC meets 2 Wednesdays a month from 4:30-6:00pm
  • Occasional Friday and Saturdays are required beyond regular meeting times
  • TAC members are expected to follow the rules and guidelines of the program, participate in bi-monthly meetings and special programs, fulfill individual and group responsibilities, develop and promote teen centered events at SLAM.


2016-2017 TAC Applications reopen June - August 2015
