The Modern’s Teen/Artist Project pairs area high school students with artists as teachers and aims to expand students’ art practices by introducing new concepts, artists, and media. Visiting artists lead students through an investigation of modern and contemporary art in the galleries and related projects in the Museum studio. Fifteen students are accepted into the eight-month course based on their applications and accompanying materials. Class sessions meet at the Modern from 2 to 5 pm most Sundays, September through April, and the program is free of charge for those 10th, 11th, and 12th graders accepted. Students are required to make a firm commitment to the program, attend class regularly, and be available for one weekend in May during the Annual Teen/Artist Project Exhibition. Applications are available here on April 1 and are due September 12 by 5 pm.
