Nasher Museum of Art Opportunity for High School Students

The Nasher Teen Council is a program for high school students to gain behind-the-scenes museum experience. Membership in the Teen Council is open, by application, to students enrolled in public high schools in Durham County. Students must be in their sophomore or junior year.


We hope to recruit students that are not just interested in creating art, but individuals who may be interested in learning and exploring different topics, such as world history, contemporary issues and scientific applications, through the museum’s exhibitions and collection.
