Teen Programs

Look. Relate. Create. From tours and workshops to volunteering opportunities, there's a place for teens at the Dallas Museum of Art. DMA Teen Programs are opportunities for teens (ages 13-19) to make connections with global cultures, meet and collaborate with new friends, and find inspiration in new places.

We also offer two volunteer programs for teens: the Teen Advisory Council and the Teen Ambassador program. Click the links in the sidebar to learn more about these opportunities.
