Teen Studio serves Milwaukee high school students who are committed to further developing their involvement in visual art.
Teen Residents receive mentoring from RedLine’s established and emerging artists, collaborate with internationally and locally recognized visiting artists, and lead demonstrations for their peers once a month at Contemporary Teen Nights. The teen residents meet together for two hours every week with their artist mentors.
Through engaging with the RedLine community, honing professional skills as they relate to art and social practice, and visiting artist-run spaces throughout Milwaukee, residents explore the lasting effects that an engaged artistic practice can have on community.
Teen Studio Cultivates in each Student:
a sense of autonomy and integrity in educational and professional pursuits
an ability to trust their own uniqueness, using self-directed projects to pursue their particular interests
the kinetic and procedural knowledge necessary to operate a printing press and to understand print and narrative form
the ability to speak comfortably in front of their peers
the tools they may need to make creative contributions on a local level for the health of their communities.
