Joslyn’s Kent Bellows Mentoring Program (KBMP) is an interdisciplinary arts studio and young artist mentorship that encourages teens to explore, observe, think, and create in the arts. Teens (mentees) and professional artists (mentors) meet after school in an environment that provides a balance of freedom and support, diverse art practice, and which encourages community involvement. Three semesters per year, professional artist mentors are matched with about 50 high school teens who are provided an opportunity to find personal inspiration, gain technical skills, and build a portfolio.

This program is not a traditional class structure and, instead, encourages teens to come with their own original ideas.
