Teen events

Throughout the year teen-centered events will be happening at the museum including tours, exhibitions, and collaborations with high school art programs! More information will be available soon. Want to help organize and plan these events? Join the AMSTeens Council!


To aid in the development and execution of AMSTeens, the Art Museum of South Texas is forming a Teen Art Advisory Council. Current high-school-age students who have an interest in art, culture, community engagement, and museum work are invited to apply. Council members will work closely with museum staff, local artists, and community leaders on the AMSTeens program and will also be involved with various volunteer activities around the museum.

All Council Member Spots are filled at this time. Check back soon for information on teen programs taking place this Fall!


Throughout the summer, Council Members will work on creating their own pieces of art inspired by/as a response to the museum’s State of the Art: Locate exhibit. The summer will end in an AMSTeens Response Exhibit and Reception showcasing the work our Council Members created over the summer!
