Artists in the Classroom Mentorship Salons

Are you an artist with experience or interest in working with young people? Are you looking for ways to connect with like-minded artists in your community? Ever wonder if mentorship might help you advance your career?

We want to hear from you!

Join us for connection and dialogue with a diverse group of like-minded artists working in a variety of disciplines. Through a series of energetic and thought-provoking activities, we will share experiences, reframe traditional models and ideate possibilities for building a local community of mentorship for artists in the classroom.
