Young Artist Rising Summer Intensive

For 6 weeks, starting Tuesday, June 5th until July 10th – Asher Mains, internationally recognized artist and educator, will be working with 6 young artists aged 16 – 30 to:

– put together a small body of work

– learn best professional practices for artists and

– put on a group exhibit together.

The goal is to work with promising young artists and give them a jumpstart in best practices as an artist.

Interested artists can email by May 29th with their interest and 3 samples of their work.

This is not a class to learn to paint or draw etc. This is for artists who have made a start and who would benefit from learning how to assemble a body of work and what they need to go forward as artists. Artists will meet with Asher Mains once a week to look at and critique their work, write their artist statements and bios, and then on the 6th week will put on a group exhibit.

The cost for this intensive is $100EC

We look forward to helping push our bright young talents forward!
