Teen Lounge at Fleisher Art Memorial is accepting project proposals from teaching artists for paid residencies. Teen Lounge is a free, drop-in program providing young people ages 13-19 with opportunities to work with experienced Teaching Artists from around the region. Participating teens evaluate proposals submitted by Teaching Artists through the RFP (Request for Proposals) process.The deadline is February 7, 2018, for projects in April - June 2018
. We will be selecting roughly six visiting artists, who are compensated up to $600 for 4 sessions with a supply budget of $150. Artists will be asked to attend a mandatory proposal review fair scheduled for Monday, February 12
to meet Teen Lounge students, who will then vote to select the artists they want to work with in the Spring term. The workshops should offer young people an exciting opportunity to be introduced to a medium or explore a theme of relevance to this age group. The workshop must be completed in 6-8 hours (3-4 sessions) maximum. Experimental workshop proposals are welcome and highly encouraged.
Workshops will be held on Mondays, Tuesdays, or Wednesdays from 3:30 to 6:00 pm. Up to 15 students attend our Teen Lounge daily, from a variety of levels in art making experiences -- however, due to the drop-in structure of the program, the class group can vary from session to session. Please keep this in mind when designing your workshop.
