ATLANTA – The City of Atlanta’s Office of Cultural Affairs is proud to announce ARTSCooL’s return for the summer of 2013 with a call for professional art instructors and teen artists.
Through a partnership with the Atlanta Workforce Development Agency and the Mayor’s Youth Program, ARTSCooL identifies teens who want summer income and the opportunity to work under the guidance of a local professional artist to gain technical instruction.
Participants meet in a performing, visual, or digital arts studio for four hours a day with their teaching artist.
Professional artists interested in mentor artist positions should see the Call for Artists at http://www.ocaatlanta.com/2013-call-professional-artists.
Teens with an interest or background in the arts should arrange an interview to be considered for the program. Participants must meet the following criteria: Must be a resident of the City of Atlanta and provide proof of residency, must be between 14 and 18 years old, must successfully complete the application and interview process, bring two to four samples of original work, and submit a one page essay on “What Art Means to You.” To arrange an interview, contact Jessica Gaines at 404-546-6792 <tel:404-546-6792> or
by March 11, 2013.
