Hope Interns working with Artist Mentors

posted in: Artist Mentors | 0

Preparation for the Inverted Arts Camp at Hope Academy is under-way! For the last two weeks the Artist Mentors have been working with eight Hope interns in grades 11-12 as part of the HopeWORKS program. Each Artist Mentor has two interns who have been working on-site at the Artist’s studio or workplace, learning more about their chosen artistic discipline and helping the Artist Mentor prepare class curriculum and activities for the upcoming Art Camp which begins Monday morning June 27 for sixty 6th-9th graders. The Hope interns have been working hard, gaining valuable experience in the creative workplace, and will be classroom assistants once the Art Camp begins.
