This free semester-long program empowers high school students (grades 9-12) to become interpreters of the world and works of Salvador Dalí. With the help of guest-speakers and Museum staff, participants will attend hands-on workshops dedicated to the research, writing and recording of new content with the goal of creating the Museum’s a for-teens-by-teens audio tour. This year the program will be meeting virtually via Zoom. Students will visit the Museum once to record their audio guide entries.
In addition to the art and fun, the Teen Voices program builds self-esteem, enhancing the speaking and writing skills of participants and providing opportunities to verbalize personal choices.
The program consists of 16 meetings, taking place from February through May. Meetings are held on Sundays from 2-4pm. A full schedule of dates will be provided at the first meeting.
The program is administered by Dalí Museum education staff and Pinellas County AP Art History teacher John Stewart. Guest speakers include playwright and audio producer Sheila Cowley and writer and sound designer Matt Cowley.
