Ag47 Collective - Youth Artists Wanted!
Are you looking for an art club with a little bit more? Do you want to explore new mediums and big ideas? Do you love snacks? Then join Ag47, a multi-generational inclusive art collective and mentorship program where you will meet creative kids your age from all over Chicago and make art on a theme.
Each week real working guest artists come in to teach about everything from videography to screen printing to dance performances and everything in between! We meet on Sundays from 2-5 at Grace Church of Logan Square at Wrightwood and Kimball from January to April.
What We do:
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.
