We offer a fun and innovative youth art residency program that focuses on portfolio building and exploring new ideas. One residency will be given out per year to a youth 10-16 years of age who is a resident of Kansas or Missouri. This art residency will focus on different art techniques, concepts and materials. The Artist will have the chance to work with painting, collage, photo transfer, printmaking, stenciling, oil, pastels and more. No photography or ceramics will be offered. The goal of this residency is to build a well rounded portfolio for a student wanting to pursue the visual arts in high school or college. The residency will build to a portfolio show at the Gallery in December 2018, where highlights of the past year of work will be displayed.
Artist will complete 5 to 10 hours of studio time per week of the residency, with breaks for holiday weeks. The studio time will be split between teacher lead and independent studio time for the artist to delve into their practice. Artist is required to work with the art director in their community outreach art program at least 5 hours a quarter.
$30.00 per application (non-refundable deposit. Not an indication that the artist will be chosen).
