Teen Artist Guild

The Teen Artist Guild is a program founded and produced by Phoenix Center for the Arts, with supportive collaboration from the Phoenix Art Museum and Burton Barr Library. It is guided by an Advisory Council of art industry professionals who believe that career development is a crucial element of art education, and whose goal is to mentor teens who are interested in pursuing a career in the Arts.

The Teen Artist Guild (TAG) provides a forum for teens to explore visual arts career paths, and create their own path to a thriving career as an artist. Teens will meet guest artists from the professional art world, attend lectures and tours, try out new art methods, network, and learn how to market their artistic skills.

Monthly meetings with guest artist lecture series will be held on Third Saturdays (unless posted otherwise on the TAG Facebook page), every month at Phoenix Center for the Arts, (or Phoenix Art Museum & Burton Barr Library where noted on the TAG Calendar). Additional workshops, classes, or art shows may be offered throughout the year.

The Teen Artist Guild offers teen artists many opportunities to show their work. Young artists will have practical experience preparing their art for shows including:

• Seeking call for artists
• Meeting deadlines
• Naming and pricing items
• Matting & framing
• Discussing and planning events
• Volunteering for art shows
• Promoting shows
• Curating art shows
