This brand new after-school program runs on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 4 – 6pm, starting April 4th through June 21, 2018. Teen Art House provides youth with a secure and inspiring learning and social environment, where participants have the opportunity to explore a variety of artistic mediums and have the opportunity to work with experienced Teaching Artists on guided art projects.
With guidance from Creative York’s Monitor, teens will develop their own creative program by choosing the artists with whom they wish to work. Projects are collaborative and rely on a strong group dynamic, which will allow teens to explore media ranging from clay, painting, music, poetry, and photography.
Creative York is currently accepting Artist Proposals from teaching artists for paid teaching sessions. The deadline for proposals is March 15, 2018 for projects starting April 4 – June 21, 2018. We will be selecting a total of six teaching artists. Artists will be interviewed in March.
The workshops should offer young people, between the ages 12-18, an exciting opportunity to be introduced to a medium or explore a theme of relevance to this age group and be completed in 6 hours (4 sessions). Experimental workshop proposals are welcome.
