Are you between the ages of 14-19? Are you interested in programming for and by other teens? If so, you should take a look at what the ICA teen programs has to offer.


The Teen Arts Council consists of twelve ambitious high school students who share a common interest in the arts and public relations. The council organizes Teen Nights, assists upcoming artists, and various projects though out the year. Our primary objective is to supply Boston’s youth with the tools to voice themselves in the contemporary world of art.

Classes and Workshops

Various classes and digital workshops allow students of all skill levels and interests get involved in the creation of art in a variety of formats, including audio, animation, 3-D design, video and digital photography.

The Fast Forward Program is for students serious about creating film, video and new media works. Fast Forward students have year-round access to professional artists, professional equipment and presentation opportunities locally and nationally.

You might be an artist yourself—visual artist, poet/writer, musician, dancer, filmmaker—or simply excited to become more involved in the arts and museums. Want to get involved? Email
