What: A summer program that connects kids 14-18 years of age (rising 9-12th graders) who are serious about their art and design talent with local artists in their studios. This program is aimed at students who want to explore and develop their skills and knowledge of their medium. It will offer a safe, engaging option for teens to push their talents to the next level.
When: Summer: Mid-June through mid August. Artists will work with students for 15 hours over their choice of either 1 week (M-F) or once or twice per week for a few weeks.
Who: Local high school students, rising grades 9-12, and talented local artists. Students must apply to work with a specific artist. We will choose two students to be mentored by each artist, or group of artists. Scroll down to check out our list of artists for this summer!
Where: Mentorships will take place at the artist’s studios or, if necessary, at the Roots + Wings Creative Campus. Students will also participate in two meetings together at Roots + Wings.
Cost: Sliding scale up to $300 per student. We can offer full or partial scholarships, and will accept payments beyond the $300 to support other scholarships.
How to Apply: Applications will be online in the Spring of 2019! Stay tuned!
