TAG – Teen Art Group

Teen Art Group at the Vancouver Art Gallery

Teen Art Group (TAG) is a chance for high school students to work with practicing artists in studio at Emily Carr University of Art + Design and explore visual culture at the Vancouver Art Gallery.

TAG brings together students between ages 15-18 twice a month from October 2017 to May 2018. Students experiment with and learn different art techniques as well as tour and discuss gallery exhibitions. These after school sessions alternate between the Vancouver Art Gallery and Emily Carr University.

TAG Members:
• Get behind-the-scenes access to artists and exhibits at Emily Carr University of Art + Design and the Vancouver Art Gallery.
• Participate in hands-on art-making workshops every month and explore a wide range of issues and media with artists and educators.
• Generate new ideas and skills for your portfolio and deepen your understanding of design and culture alongside your creative peers.


Interested in TAG? Come see what this program is all about and connect with other students through a mini-tour and short workshop. Teens only please!
