Virtual Creative Studio with The Contemporary Austin and AISD: July 13-30, 2020
Are you looking for ways to reconnect with other creative teens in your area? Want to have access to a group of curious, thoughtful people looking to express themselves through art making? Hoping to find a way to broaden your art skills, get other opinions on your work, or meet local artists? This is the group for you! Through this 3-week session, you’ll work with a cohort of 30 teens from all over AISD, learning from each other as well as local art teachers and museum educators from The Contemporary Austin. You’ll get an art kit with top-of-the line art supplies, access to demonstrations by experts, and an outlet to express the ideas and issues that are important to you, and that make you who you are. At the end of the three weeks, you’ll have your art exhibited (virtually or in person), in an exhibition co-presented by the district and a major local art museum.
Requirements: This program is open to teens ages 14-18. Art making experience is a plus, and curiosity about contemporary art, ideas, materials, and yourself is required. Access to a computer and reliable internet is necessary, but assistance with this requirement may be possible through the school district. Application materials will include a request for an artist statement, as well as a survey about what you would like to learn about. YOU shape the session: program coordinators will follow your interests/skills when creating curriculum for the session.
There are also a number of other ways that Central Texas teens can get involved with the museum:
