Teen Arts Council

Hey YOU! Did you know Krasl Art Center has our very own Teen Arts Council (TAC)? The TAC has been regularly meeting to build a community of young artists, ages 13-19, interested in pursuing art beyond what is available at school. Our meetings have covered everything from college prep, writing workshops, skill building, art making, and more!

We have big plans for the future of the TAC. In the coming months we will be hosting plenty of free meetings, workshops, and field trips! If you are interested in joining you should come to one of our upcoming meetings this summer or reach out to learn more!

The best way to stay in the loop with the Teen Arts Council is by checking out our Instagram, @kraslteens. Our group is always growing and open to new members, we would love to have you on board. We hope to see you involved with the TAC in the future!

If you have any questions regarding the TAC – reach out to us! The TAC Co-Chairs are Rowan Davis and Eliot Schlaack, get a hold of them at tac@krasl.org
