Teen Art Group


Teen Art Group (TAG), is an exciting art program for youth ages 15-18, taking place two afternoons each month during the school year, from September 2018 to May 2019. The program alternates between Emily Carr University of Art + Design and the Vancouver Art Gallery, where students are introduced to art-making practices in the studio and visual culture in the Gallery. Students work with a variety of artists and innovators and have the opportunity to explore public exhibitions at the Vancouver Art Gallery.

TAG is a great opportunity for teens who are interested in art and design and who want to explore and expand their creative practice while attending high school.


  • Get behind-the-scenes access to instructors and studios at Emily Carr University of Art + Design, and the Vancouver Art Gallery’s collections, curators and visiting artists.
  • Participate in hands-on art-making workshops every month and explore a wide range of issues and media with artists and educators.
  • Generate new ideas and skills for your portfolio – take your interest in art, design and culture to the next level with other teens who are interested in art!


TAG brings together students twice a month from October to May. These after school sessions run from 4:00pm to 7:00pm and alternate between the Vancouver Art Gallery and Emily Carr University on the first and third Thursday of each month.


Registration for the 2019/2020 session is now full. Please check back mid-Spring 2020 for information on the next session of programming.
