Exhibit-TEEN

Exhibit-TEEN is a youth mentorship program formed in partnership with Seattle nonprofit Urban Artworks. This education initiative invites participants of Urban Artworks’ year-long mentorship program to work collaboratively alongside MadArt staff in a project-specific context. Over the course of four weeks, mentoring partners work at MadArt Studio to develop, design, and execute a set of canvas murals to be temporarily exhibited on the facade of the building. Additionally, participants engage in supplemental workshops that focus on professional youth development such as peer critique, arts writing, and portfolio review. Centering on high-quality arts education that fosters youth development, this program aims to facilitate a comprehensive experience for participants that spans various aspects of exhibition planning and execution, as well as arts professionalism.
