The Youth Council has planned a year of exciting programs just for teens.

Teens Take TMA

Join Youth Council for a night just for teens at the Museum! Enjoy art-making, music, and gallery activities. Free and open to all local high school students. Food and drinks provided.


Fall Student Exhibition

The Fall Student Exhibition provides local teen artists an opportunity to showcase their talents in a juried exhibition. Selected works will be displayed in the Museum with top prizes being awarded by respected members of the Tampa Bay art community. Check here this fall for submissions and more information.

Young Directors' Film Festival

Enjoy short films and documentaries from a range of genres created by local high school directors and filmmakers. Students are welcome to submit their films starting this fall. Prizes will be awarded to the top films.

“Be the Change” Spoken Word Open Mic Night

High school poets, writers, essayists, performers, and changemakers are invited to share their work at the TMA Youth Council’s Spoken Word Open Mic Night. There are no winners, no losers, no prizes, nor runners-up, just support and snaps from your peers.

This event is free and open to the public. Performers are required to register to reserve their mic time. Check back this fall for dates and more information.
