New Extreme Mentorship Program – Connecting local artists and youth!
The New Extreme Program pairs local artists with groups of youth at schools (and organizations) across Victoria and together they explore various aspects of being an artist and engaging with contemporary art. Over an 8 week period from January through March groups learn about: New artistic concepts and studio techniques, creative processes, writing an artist statement (or manifesto!) the creation of an artistic project and exhibiting artwork.
This year local artists Ann-Bernice Thomas, Chesa Kai Abma-Slade and Kay Gallivan will be working with various local youth groups. Artist/educators and groups will explore a range of artistic practices and ideas including; Spoken word and performance, street and public art, mural making, dance and movement arts, and more!
New Extreme workshops are held in a variety of artistic media and emphasize exploration and engaging with curiosity. Are you interested in exploring questions and ideas important to you, through art? Then this program is for you!
If you’re interested in having your school participate please inquire!
