Creating a successful career as an artist takes talent, skill and the use of many different resources. Emerging artists benefit from the expertise and encouragement of established artists who have successful careers in their field.
STARTING POINT — All artists are given a one hour evaluation with a professional artist and creative specialist to determine if they are ready to move on. We recommend a path for them.
TURNING POINT – Artists who are not quite ready to go on to a professional status are given a 10–15 hour mentorship with a professional artist and business work-shops to help guide them to the next level of their training.
THE MENTORSHIP – Pairing emerging artists with a professional mentor in the com-munity for up to 100 hours of guidance.
PEER TO PEER – Skilled high school students teach art techniques to underserved younger students in exchange for Community Service Hours.
