TAG–Teen Art Group

TAG–Teen Art Group, is an exciting art program for youth aged 15-18, taking place two afternoons each month during the school year, from September 2017 to May 2018. The program alternates between Emily Carr University of Art + Design and the Vancouver Art Gallery, where students are introduced to art-making practices in the studio and visual culture in the Gallery. Students work with a variety of artists and innovators and have the opportunity to explore public exhibitions at the Vancouver Art Gallery.

TAG is a great opportunity for teens who are interested in art and design and who want to explore and expand their creative practice while attending high school. The next TAG Launch will be Thursday, September 14, 2017 at 4pm. The TAG Launch is free and open to all teens 15-18 years old.
