What is the Teen-Artist Project (TAP)?

The Modern’s Teen-Artist Project pairs area high school students with artists as teachers. The program aims to expand each student’s art practice, introducing new concepts, approaches, artists, and media. Each visiting artist leads students through an investigation of modern and contemporary art in the galleries and related projects in the Museum studio. Participants also spend an afternoon visiting museums and galleries throughout the DFW Metroplex, further expanding their knowledge of art as found in their own community.

Who participates in the TAP?


Fourteen dedicated, hardworking, and creative students will be accepted to participate in the program each semester based on their applications and accompanying materials. Students are required to make a firm commitment to the Program and to attend class regularly. Students must also be available several weekends in May during the annual Teen-Artist Project exhibition, which is juried by two area artists and combines the work of the students completed with the 3 artist-instructors.

Where is TAP held?

At The Modern every Sunday from 2-5 pm, beginning November 15th until April 25th, before the student show begins.

When is the Teen-Artist Project exhibition and where will it be shown?

The TAP Exhibition will be held at Gallery 414 in Fort Worth beginning May 1st until May 16th. The exhibition will be shown on weekends only and the students will be the gallery attendants. Friends and family are encouraged to see the show! More details, as they come available, will be posted about the opening reception.
