New Extreme Mentorship Program – Connecting local artists and youth!
The New Extreme Program pairs local artists with groups of youth across Victoria, and together they explore various aspects of being an artist and engaging with contemporary art. From January through April groups learn about: New artistic concepts and studio techniques, creative processes, writing an artist statement (or manifesto!) and creating & sharing an artistic project/s.
This year (2020) local artists Chris Dufour, Joshua Ngenda and Andréa Searle will be working with various local youth groups. Artist/educators and groups will explore a range of artistic practices and ideas including ecological art & soil science, public art & mural making, and identity and the photographic image.
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! (Note – Class size can be min. 7 learners, max 20.) *Please note that space is limited.
