YOUTH LEADERSHIP IN THE ARTS
ARTiculate is a three week leadership program that exposes youth, ages 13-18, to a variety of art forms and experiences. Participants have the opportunity to work with professional artists from a variety of disciplines, get behind-the-scene access to major cultural institutions and galleries in Toronto, and plan and teach their own workshops at our local libraries! Over the course of three weeks, participants will have learnt new art techniques, invaluable leadership skills, and have a stronger working knowledge of the arts and culture sector. ARTiculate culminates with an exhibition of the participants’ works in the Smith Zone Gallery at Lakeshore Arts.
In 2015, ARTiculate workshops included 3D printing design, video production,photography, printmaking and field trips to Maydwell Mascots, the Textile Museum of Canada and Shakespeare in High Park. Participants taught more than 50 children in local libraries, applying their newly learned art and leadership skills.
Applications are now being accepted for the July 2016 session.
