Now in its second year, the Youth Art Mentorship Program (YAM) offers senior high school students the opportunity to work directly with professional mentors in a gallery setting. Successful applicants will develop a new body of work and participate in a public art exhibition at the Art Gallery of Peterborough along with a group of their peers.
Training in visual arts and creative administration can open doors to a range of professions including careers in animation, industrial design, architecture, and the non-profit sector. This program offers participating youth the chance to develop valuable and transferrable employment skills to better equip them for a career in the arts and other sectors after high school.
This session will provide insights into the program and offer Q&A for people interested in the program.
