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 October 2016 to May 2017. 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 22, 2016.

What Teen Art Group Members do:
  • Get behind-the-scenes access to instructors and studios at Emily Carr University of Art + Design, and the Vancouver Art Gallery's collections, curators and visiting artists.
  • Participate in hands-on art-making workshops every month and explore a wide range of issues and media with artists and educators.
  • Generate new ideas and skills for your portfolio – take your interest in art, design and culture to the next level with other teens who are interested in art!
