For Teens

Mural created by ATAC for Helena High School, 2017



Afterschool Teen Arts Council (ATAC)

The Holter Museum is proud to announce a new teen arts initiative called ATAC or the Afterschool Teen Arts Council.

ATAC is an opportunity for creatively minded Helena teens to come together and become an integral part of the Holter Museum, therefore becoming advocates for the arts among their peers as well as the community as a whole.

What? ATAC is a group of motivated high school teens that develops and promotes creative programming at the museum to connect teens to contemporary art and each other.  At the Holter Museum the ATAC will play a vital role in expanding programs and building a teen audience at the museum. The ATAC will organize and host classes, workshops and other programs of their own creation.

Who? High school teens ages 14-18, who are passionate about contemporary art and visual culture, interested in working in a museum as well as studio setting, enjoy working with their peers from diverse backgrounds and are willing to commit to …. The Council will meet weekly during the school year.

Would you like to create programs like Teen Nights, film screenings, artist talks, workshops, performances, and more?  Work with museum staff, contemporary artists, and other area teens? Be an innovator, while being exposed to contemporary art? If the answer is ”yes” than become a member of ATAC today!
