Teen Arts Action Group (TAAG)
Are you between the ages of 15–18 and interested in working in an artistic environment with peers and professional artists? TAAG is for you! Sign up through our volunteer program to gain community service hours and leadership experience as a Teen Ambassador. The ambassadorships are designed to give you access to the arts, and for you to increase access for others where you live! If you are already a Frist volunteer, you may be able to serve on TAAG in addition to your regular duties.
As a Teen Ambassador, you will learn from Frist educators and mentors how to choose programming themes and serve as an exhibition juror. You will acquire promotional skills, connect with other artistic youth, and create work with some of today’s most innovative artists. Develop leadership and professional skills as you support the Frist’s ARTlab series (see program details below).'
To be considered for an ambassadorship, you must be able to devote four hours each month to TAAG assignments and attend two TAAG meetings each year (in May and September).

Calling all teens! Bring your current art project or sketchbook, and hang out with other youth and local artists at the new Teen Studio Nights. We’ll spend time in the exhibitions checking out the amazing artwork from around the world, talk about your artwork, and make art, too. Teen Studios will take place every third Thursday of the month during the school year.
More information about 2019 programs coming soon!
