Are you interested in programs for and by other teens? Are you in high school and at least 13 years old? If so, you should take a look at what the ICA Teen Programs has to offer.


The Teen Arts Council is a group of creative leaders. The TAC organizes Teen Nights, assists upcoming artists, and various projects though out the year. Our main goal is to supply Boston’s youth with the tools to voice themselves in the contemporary world of art.


Various workshops and programs allow teens of all skill levels and interests get involved in the creation of art in a variety of formats, including music & audio, film & video and digital photography.

The Fast Forward Program is for teens serious about creating film & video. Fast Forward participants 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
