Teen Artist Internship Program

  Over the passed eight weeks I have been working with a local high school student as part of Artworks! Teen Artist Internship Program.  The program was begun in the hopes of giving teens an insight into the practice of a professional artist.  As a mentor, the experience has been incredibly rewarding.  I conducted an eight-week painting course and worked closely with my student to strengthen her ability in color-mixing and composition.  The project culminates in an exhibition which opens at Artworks! next Thursday and remains on display until the end of July.  Come join us and show support for these young artists.
