Teens interacting with art

Teen Programs

MCASD invites teens to connect with the Museum, contemporary art, and various social issues through the Teen Advisory Group (TAG). TAG is at the core of the Museum's teen programming and engages a diverse group of teens from across San Diego County. Teens learn about the Museum as a site of citizen participation, education, and exploration of social issues through the lens of contemporary art. This diverse group of teens will meet with museum professionals, local artists, and organizations to discuss art and investigate artworks and exhibitions, inspiring them to imagine, develop, and make art designed to reach their peers and a wider Museum audience. TAG participants learn to create multi-disciplinary work as they envision and eventually developed a public exhibition of their artwork.

Applications for the 2022-2023 academic year will open in late summer.
