In 2017, Lubeznik Center for the Arts (LCA) founded the Teen Arts Council (TAC) hoping it would become an inclusive and experiential program for young creative leaders across the region; that it would offer exceptional opportunities for a diverse group of high school students interested in deepening their understanding of the art world as well as themselves.
LCA is proud that this free program has grown and now connects passionate teens from around the region with unique arts experiences to expand their knowledge of contemporary arts practices, the roles that artists play in society and their own creative voices. TAC is currently sponsored by the Lindsey O’Brien Kesling Wishing Tree Foundation and the Dale E. Landsman Foundation.
With a combination of fun and education, TAC members take trips to regional museums and events, enjoy art workshops, visit artists’ studios, develop their individual porfolios and participate in monthly meetings to discuss contemporary art practices.
If you know a teen who is interested in TAC participation, LCA is offering a free event on Wednesday, July 28, 2021 from 4 – 7 PM (Central) to learn more! Join LCA to experiment with acrylic pour art and button making with current Teen Arts Council (TAC) members. Enjoy a snack and talk with other teens about TAC while artmaking!
LCA’s Teen Art Council is sponsored by the Dale E. Landsman Arts Foundation and the Lindsey O’Brien Kesling Wishing Tree Foundation. For more information, call LCA at 219.874.4900 or email Jbloch@lubeznikcenter.org.
