Ag47 Collective - Artist Mentors Wanted
Ag47 is currently recruiting mentors for it's upcoming season! Are you an art maker or just a person who wants to make art? Do you like hanging out with cool teens? Do you want to do something meaningful with your Sunday afternoons for a few months while making art and hanging out with cool teens? If so, we'd love to have you.
What We do:
We are a multi-generational arts collective creating art together on Sundays in Logan Square from 2-5pm from January through April culminating in a gallery show in early May.
We create unique celebrations and compliment each other on our strengths and our bravery. We invite local artists to come teach us their craft or profession. We explore and encounter art across genres--from illustration to stop animation to performance theater (and beyond). We make exceptional art and showcase it to our community at the end of our season.Youth artists are matched with an adult mentor based on their interests, they are also encouraged to go seek out fun art activities together outside of the Sunday workshops (always with parent permission). Many of our mentors come to Ag47 already having experience working with young folks however, we do provide training and require background checks as well.
Ag47 knows that youth creative voices should be amplified and their stories shared. The collective achieves this through artistic collaboration and one-to-one mentorship between youth artists and adult mentors. Ag47 prioritizes and strives to lift up the voices of those seeking brave space through creativity and community. By encouraging
each other to take risks, ask questions, and present work to a public audience, AG47 provides youth with the chance to be heard and their communities with the chance to listen.
