Teen CO•OP

The museum's Teen CO•OP gives teens a chance to express their creative ideas and change your experience at the museum. We are high school students from in and around Cleveland, and we like to make and enjoy art. We want to give you something by teens, for teens. Look for us at the art museum throughout the year and around the museum on Second Sundays family days. CO•OP members also work on projects like the teen guide, gallery programming, short videos, and events for other teens. 


Time commitment:

  • Summer session from July 25–August 5, 2016.
  • Participation in monthly Second Sunday family days from August 14, 2016, until May 14, 2017.

High school students are invited to apply. Teens should be in grades 9–11 at the time of application. Preference will be given to teens with exceptional communication skills.


Applications are due on Wednesday, June 15. Required materials:
