Artists, makers, tinkerers, innovators and creative types! Trying to find a place to make art, express yourself, and feel like you belong? The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art teen programs are packed with creative minds and contagious energy.
Get involved, make new friends, create art, plan events, and ask questions about the world we live in. Relax, create, and be inspired by the art around you.
The Teen Advisory Groups (TAG) is a group of diverse and motivated High School students from around the Kansas City area who are called upon to connect other teens to the museum through marketing and creating events and activities, for teens by teens. Even though TAG members are paid a stipend for their participation the position requires a high degree of commitment and dependability. The application process is competitive as this unique opportunity offers a select group of teens a leadership, cultural, and resume-building experience like no other.
