The Walters Art Museum Teen Arts Council

The Walters Art Museum Teen Arts Council (WAMTAC) is a group of high school students interested in exploring and promoting art. WAMTAC plans events at the museum for other youth; hosts community arts workshops around Baltimore city and county; implements collaborative projects with youth-led groups; writes grants to support arts programs; and produces a zine to circulate within local and area highs schools. We also have the chance to interact with museum staff to learn about all kinds of artistic careers (we even got to go into the conservation lab!) Basically, are a group of dedicated, quirky, fun youth who love art!
