Mentorship Program

Youth Art Works Teen Studio!

Our Youth Art Works! Teen Studio Program is entering the third year of providing Middle School and High School students a unique opportunity to work in a hands-on environment with professional artists.

Working in small groups, students spend 25-30 hours per quarter learning specific art-making skills as well as connecting students to the opportunities available in the career field as artists.

This program provides teens with an opportunity to explore a career path in the arts aw well as learning how to use art for self-expression during a highly critical transition for all youth.

Core Concepts:

Art History

Developing a Practice


Representation – Includes creating a portfolio, building a gallery show and promoting

Students learn everything from how to stretch a canvas, choosing a substrate, how to present their art, how to price, and how to hang a show.  Students are also given opportunities to show and sell their art in various venues including Emerald Art Center.

 There is a suggested donation of $50.00 for Quarterly Sessions to help pay for operating costs and supplies. We do have Scholarships available. We appreciate your continued support. Please call 541-726-8595 if you have any questions or concerns or email:

We are looking forward to preparing our kids for a productive and creative future! Thank you for your support!
