Listen up. Act soon. This program fills up quickly!
jumpstART, a CUE Art Foundation and Joan Mitchell Foundation collaboration, will begin accepting applications on Tuesday, September 2nd (that’s this coming Tuesday!) from high school Juniors and Seniors in the New York City area.
jumpstART is an intensive program for high school juniors and seniors with a demonstrated interest in and aptitude for the visual arts. jumpstART guides students throughout the process of conceptualizing, organizing, promoting, and curating their own group exhibition. The program takes place over three consecutive terms (Fall, Winter, and Spring) and provides participants an opportunity to work with different media, create work for their portfolios, and become a part of a vibrant community of artists. jumpstART participants are exposed to a broad range of careers opportunities in the arts, working closely with artists, designers, printers, curators, public-speaking coaches and art administrators. Through these relationships, participants learn key skills applicable to all aspects of their professional lives and emerge from the program with both practical business skills and fine arts training.
This is a free, yes, FREE year-long program, running from October to June, meeting for three hours twice a week at CUE in Chelsea on Thursdays and Saturdays.
If you are high school junior or senior ready to take your commitment to your artistry to the next level, follow this link: http://joanmitchellfoundation.org/education-programs/register on Tuesday, September 2nd and apply!
