The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth’s Teen/Artist Project (TAP) is an ongoing program in which regional and national teaching artists expand the knowledge of art, analysis, and techniques for young, aspiring artists.
Fifteen high school students are accepted each year through a portfolio review and application process. This two-semester course meets from 2 to 5 pm each Sunday at the Modern.
Students develop a personal, lasting relationship with the Museum’s art and architecture through close and continuous investigations. A variety of visiting artists design studio workshops, gallery tours, and related lectures in sections that span one to four weeks. Inevitably, participants glean rich insights into the ideas and practices of each visiting artist they work with, and as a result, they develop their own attitudes and impulses within the field of contemporary art. The Modern’s education department works with each visiting artist to achieve the most effective programming, including an occasional offsite project or visit. This program is as demanding as it is rewarding. Students are required to make a firm commitment to attend class regularly, participate in class discussions and group projects, and ultimately contribute works for the TAP exhibition and catalogue at the close of each season.
