Intensive Art Mentorship ( I AM)

Intensive Art Mentorship - - I AM: Hidden Marin

Youth in Arts’  Intensive Art Mentorship program aims to amplify the power in young artists to make important change happen in their communities.

In our new summer mentorship program for emerging high school artists, participating students will work with a professional visual artist  to create a collaborative public mural to be placed in a multiplex in Corte Madera. The project will center the topics of community and joy and aim to activate a communal space for neighbors. Join us and Youth in Arts Mentor Artist Amaera BayLaurel as we explore creative expression, engage in critical conversations, and create impactful artworks to share with the world. The Meadowsweet mural will bring together a group of high school-aged emerging artists to take part in this creative process and amplify the voice of young makers like you in the community through visual arts!

This program is geared towards young artists ages 13 – 18 who are passionate about creating and sharing their artwork with the community.
