Emerging Artists Program

Art Start’s Emerging Artists Program supports historically marginalized youth, ages 14 - 20, who have exhibited interest and artistic talent, but require more resources and support to turn that talent into opportunities for their self-determined future. The program provides emerging artists with a safe space to experiment and a rigorous schedule of coursework, project creation, networking, paid internships, showcase opportunities, and two-year planning. They also provide a transportation stipend and career-counseling in the creative professional industries. Applications are now open.
