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 the artist, Karen Saunders. Together they will utilize fiber to create text and image based art.  Students will learn new techniques such a needle felting and crochet! Their art will then be installed outdoors on the KHAC campus as well as other TBD locations in the Kennedy Heights neighborhood.  The goal of this program is to bring young creatives together to build community with their peers, strengthen their confidence, and share with them the power of their creativity.

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

All participants need to complete and submit an Emergency Contact and Photo Release. Completed forms can be emailed to classes@kennedyarts.org or dropped off in-person at KHAC.
