Teen Artists for Change (TAC) is a club for diverse young artists in grades 7-12, who want to use their creative skills to make an impact in their community. TAC provides outlets for teens to work together to plan and implement creative projects that matter to them. Mentored by professional artists, teens develop skills and express their voices through community art projects such as exhibits, public art installations, and films.
TAC meets weekly on Saturdays from 2:00 – 4:00 pm, producing three projects in collaboration with professional artists throughout the year. Teens will explore and utilize various forms of art-making such as ceramics, photography, video production, creative writing, drawing and painting, and digital design. We will accept new members at the beginning of each term (fall, winter, spring) and require that students commit to the full term.

This fall students will work with artist Sage Hummel to create ceramic pieces that are created with themes surround environment, conservation, and climate change. Over this session teens will consider how they can use art to curate discussion and inspire change. What do artist do to create art that is environmentally conscious, and how art can be multi-functional? Teens will learn the basics of the Ceramic process and the different ways to interact with both handmade and factory-made pottery. Together teens will explore how to create a conceptual body of work, including a set of functional dishware and a large-scale vessel that speak to an underlying theme. At the end of the 8 weeks students will display their work in a group exhibition!

Teen Artists for Change is a free program due to generous support from the Charles H. Dater Foundation.
