Teen PRIDE in the Arts | Mentoring & Scholarship

More than just an art program; Teen PRIDE in the Arts Mentoring is a transformative journey that empowers LGBTQ+ youth and allies to explore their identities, amplify their voices, and celebrate their unique contributions to the world of art.  Through mentorship, self-expression and community building, this program paves the way for a more inclusive and diverse artistic landscape, where participants can thrive and create lasting impact.

This program recognizes the importance of creating a safe and inclusive environment where everyone can freely express themselves without fear of judgment or discrimination.  The program ensures respect and sensitivity to individual experiences, fostering a sense of belonging and community among participants

Teen PRIDE in the Arts is for all students grades 9-12, in the LGBTQ+ Community, non-identified, and allies looking for a safe space to develop their artistic and professional practices, while finding time to explore one’s identity through art, conversations, and reflection.

One of the exceptional students selected for this program will be awarded an additional scholarship.  The “TPA Scholarship” is equal to 35 free class hours at the Art League. This award will be determined by a set of criteria balanced on quality of work and financial need.

Applications are being accepted April 15, 2024
