The Teen Art Cooperative is THE place for creative high schoolers to come together, work with local artists, try new things, design and host events for friends, make new friends, and get a behind the scenes look at how the Museum operates.
The 15 members of the Teen Art Cooperative form a tight knit group that meets weekly on Thursday afternoons from October through May to plan and put on events, get to know and work with local artists, and get a behind the scenes look into how the Museum operates. The Mattress Factory works hard to say yes to our resident artists and we work hard in the Cooperative to say yes to the members of the group! All members must be enrolled in High School, have a sense of curiosity, an interest in the creative and a willingness to try new things, aka: be courageous!
The Cooperative is an inclusive and Brave Space where all members work together to support one another as we all learn together. Applications to join the Cooperative are open until September 19. Oh, and did we mention it is a totally FREE program!? Let the Teens in your life know about it today!
Free program, applications due by September 19.
