through a competitive application and interview process. Youth do not need to have an arts
background. This program seeks youth who do not have access to learning through the arts and
would benefit from structured immersion in the creative process.
ArtLab youth are involved in the creation and presentation of major works, mentored by
professional artists, participate in workshops directed by visiting artists and participate in servicelearning
projects. All projects address social issues affecting their generation, which creates
opportunities for youth to give voice to those issues and propels youth to become active members
and catalysts for change in their communities. Through individual and group struggles,
challenges, and obstacles, ArtLab interns learn to work together as a team, communicate, accept
differences, and focus on completing a project/goal together. In the end, ArtLab youth create
