Why should you join? Here are just a few reasons:
Amplify your voice: We believe that every young person is a natural artist and has an individual and powerful story to tell. Through Improvisation games, guided writing, visual art exercises and performance coaching, the Young Creators Project gives you the tools, supportive community and audience to share your unique perspective with the world.
Mentoring from experts: Learn from seasoned artists and industry professionals who will guide you in practicing and honing your skills, expanding your artistic vision, and building confidence in yourself and your creativity. This invaluable mentorship will help you take your creativity to the next level.
Collaborate and connect: The Young Creators Project is not just about individual artistry; it's about building connections and fostering collaboration. Connect with young artist peers, exchange ideas, and embark on creative journeys together.
The Young Creators Project welcomes participants to come as they can, understanding the demands of your busy schedule. While there is no requirement to attend every week, we do want to emphasize that regular attendance amplifies your experience and allows you to fully immerse yourself in the creative process.
Build Confidence: Shhhhh...! This is the big secret we don’t usually tell you:
Participants find that they organically become more confident in their reading, writing and speaking skills! Do you have a fear of writing? Does it feel like a CHORE? Do you get anxious when you have to speak up in school or even with your friends? The Young Creators Project has great success in helping students discover the FUN and FREEDOM in writing! Which leads to greater ease and advancement in reading skills! And sharing your creative work in a fun, safe community enhances your ability to SHARE YOUR VOICE for freely.
Performance and Exhibition opportunities: Imagine performing and/or displaying your original creative projects on stage and in art exhibits! The Young Creators Project will provide multiple opportunities throughout the year for students to perform individual and collective projects as well as provide curated exhibitions featuring the works of selected participants, providing a platform for your talent to be seen, appreciated and celebrated by family, friends, and community.
