The SLAM Teen Arts Council (STAC) is built upon the philosophy that teens themselves should be play an integral role in the design and implementation of teen programming at the Saint Louis Art Museum. Through a variety of classes and workshops both at the Museum and in the community, STAC aims to inspire teens to become leaders, artists, arts administrators, educators and lifelong patrons of the arts.

The mission of SLAM's Teen Arts Council is to be an active and influential voice in both the Saint Louis Art Museum and in the greater Saint Louis Community. By creating partnerships with local businesses and organizations council members are exposed to St. Louis’ arts community, area entrepreneurs and artists.

In addition to classes and workshops, STAC plans social and public events to cultivate a greater teen audience at SLAM.

SLAM Teen Arts Council meets one Wednesday a month from late August 2013 through early May 2014. The council meets from 4:30 to 6:00p.m. at the Saint Louis Art Museum’s Education Center. Teen Arts Council Members plan six to eight educational programs each school year. These programs are open to all teens (even non-members). Programs are typically on Fridays or Saturday afternoons, times and locations are posted on the web in advance, contact to sign up or for more information about special events!

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