TEEN ARTS COUNCIL
About the Everson Teen Arts Council (ETAC)
This is a fantastic opportunity for teens from Onondaga, Madison, and Oswego Counties to work directly with an arts organization to gain valuable experience to add to their resume, work directly with museum professionals and professional artists, and learn about future career paths. ETAC is a year-long commitment and will take place virtually for the 2020-21 school year due to Covid-19.
The Everson Teen Arts Council is a partnership between the Everson and teens from local school districts, offering a safe platform for teens to share their voice, work with their peers and engage with the greater community. The Teen Arts Council provides teens with dynamic leadership opportunities to create meaningful and relevant programs and exhibitions, while giving teens space to explore identity, build skills and prepare for college and careers.
CALL FOR ART – Calling All Central New York Teens!
The Everson Teen Arts Council is excited to announce our call for high school art for our 2021 virtual exhibition. All media are welcome, video works are limited to 2 minutes. Artists may submit up to three works for consideration. You may submit up to three images for works that are three-dimensional. Open to grades 9-12.
This year, in an attempt to combat the boredom of social isolation and stress of the events of 2020, we are accepting submissions related to the theme of escapism and what brings joy to your own inner world. Artwork is not limited to events that occurred publicly in 2020 and can include inspiration from your personal lives.
*SUBMISSION DEADLINE EXTENDED: Friday, March 12, 2021
The Everson Teen Arts Council is made possible through the generous support of David & Nancy Ridings, the Syracuse City School District, and John Ben Snow Memorial Trust.
