Teen Programs

Teen Advisory Council
The Teen Advisory Council, or TAC for short, is an opportunity for local teens to have their voices heard at the Speed Art Museum. Members of the TAC meet twice a month throughout the school year and work together with the Speed’s staff to develop ideas for teen programs and take part in unique learning and volunteer experiences at the Museum. Students enrolled in grades 9 through 11 for the 2017-2018 school year are welcome to apply now!

Applications are being accepted on a rolling basis. View the Teen Advisory Council Application 2017.

For more information on the Teen Advisory Council, please contact Taylor Bothwell at tbothwell@speedmuseum.org

 

Teen Docents
Participants in the Speed’s teen docent program learn how to engage visitors in conversation about works of art, while also learning more about the Speed’s collection. Teen docents will also have behind-the-scenes access to the Museum, as well as opportunities to meet additional Museum staff members and learn from the Speed’s current Docent Corps. After completing training, teen docents lead Family Tours on Sundays.

The Speed’s teen docent program is open to high school freshman, sophomores, and juniors. We are looking for students who love art and are excited to share the Speed’s collection with our visitors! Training takes place at the Museum twice a month, beginning in October and ending in May.

The application deadline for 2017-2018 is Friday, September 29th. View the Teen Docent Application.
