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 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.
For the Winter 2023 session, we will be partnering with artist Asha White. Asha is a multidisciplinary artist and art educator who has exhibited work locally and regionally. She also was one of 17 artists chosen to participate in the “Black Lives Matter!” mural in downtown Cincinnati.
In this eight week workshop, teens will work with together with Asha to, ” create a space for participants to examine social justice
issues of their choice and explore the impact of these issues on their mental health. This is accomplished by establishing a safe environment for uncomfortable conversations, mind mapping to organize thought, visual art making, weekly portrait photography, journaling, and sharing. The goal is to increase awareness of differing positions on social justice issues, raise awareness of participants’ mental health in response to the issues discussed, and create a support system through shared experiences.”
Due to generous support from the Charles H. Dater Foundation, participation in Teen Artists for Change is offered at no cost.
