The Youth Artist Exhibition Program through the ArtWorks Gallery presents collaborations with outstanding artists leading youth in gallery apprenticeship studios to create new works of art, guided by the artist. Youth will learn the materials and methods of the artist, making their own unique and individual works of art. A group exhibit will be the outcome of each studio with all works for sale and proceeds going directly to youth artists. Local curators and museum partners will enhance the learning with a foundational gallery exhibition curriculum for all emerging artists. Youth will represent their art through artist statements, gallery talks, opening events, and community events. Artists will host community workshops to engage with residents through art making activities during the run of each exhibit.
