Update from Art Team
Since August, we have started our work again supporting Family Day, developing creative opportunities for young people, and growing and connecting as a team. We will have more information about recruiting new Art Team members to our team in the spring of 2021. Due to Covid-19, we are meeting mostly virtually and a couple monthly socially distant small group in-person meetings, navigating all the realities of this time.
With all this, we were not able to bring on additional members to the team this year. Thanks to all those that have inquired about this, we look forward to connecting soon. If you would like to be added to our teen programs newsletter and receive updates on Art Team recruitment and other opportunities for teens at Mia, please email email@example.com.

Past Teen Programming
Global Youth Exchange

The program, which ran from January through May 2020, was designed to offer an art-based curriculum and travel experience and then culminate in a group exhibition.
