2013-2014 One-On-One Mentorship Program
Teaching Artist Mentors: Lizzy Brooks, Mary Finlayson, Eliza Gregory, Em Meine, Mie Mogensen, Carissa Potter, Ethan Rafal
Youth Artist Mentees: Amanda, Devi, Evan, Grace, Josetay, Naomi, Nelly
Youth artists paired with professional artists in their medium of interest convene together each week at Southern Exposure, splitting off into pairs and rejoining to collaborate as a group throughout the semester. The mentees learn new skills, develop projects with their mentors, participate in group critiques and share their experiences.
The 2013–2014 One-On-One Mentorship Program culminated in a group exhibition, let me explain, featuring video, collage, works on paper and a fantastic celebration of everything the mentees accomplished over the course of the program. In a casual ceremony during the opening reception, each mentee received a personalized certificate of accomplishment to mark their impressive participating and artistic output.
