Joslyn’s Kent Bellows Mentoring Program offers an interdisciplinary arts studio and professional artist support that encourages teens to explore, observe, think, and create in the arts. Three semesters per year, professional artist mentors are matched with about 70 high school teens who are provided an opportunity to find personal inspiration, gain technical skills, and build a portfolio. Teens and mentors meet after school in an environment that provides a balance of freedom and support, diverse art practice, and which encourages community involvement.
