ArtLab Facilitator

Responsibilities and Duties:
The ArtLab Facilitator works in partnership with the Creative Programming Manager and community partners to successfully implement PlatteForum’s award winning youth program, ArtLab at both PlatteForum’s main office and at one to two other partner satellite locations.

About ArtLab:
ArtLab is an innovative year-round, out-of-school program for under-resourced high school youth that integrates the creative process and arts-based learning with academic, personal, leadership and professional skill development. As an intensive program, we are limited to 16 youth who go through a competitive application and interview process. Youth do not need to have an arts background. This program seeks youth who do not have access to learning through the arts and would benefit from structured immersion in the creative process.

ArtLab youth are involved in the creation and presentation of major works, mentored by professional artists, participate in workshops directed by visiting artists and participate in service-learning projects. All projects address social issues affecting their generation, which creates opportunities for youth to give voice to those issues and propels youth to become active members and catalysts for change in their communities. Through individual and group struggles, challenges, and obstacles, ArtLab interns learn to work together as a team, communicate, accept differences, and focus on completing a project/goal together. In the end, ArtLab youth create high-quality works of art and experience a sense of accomplishment, pride, and shared purpose.

Create workshops collaboratively with the ArtLab interns, Creative Programming Manager and artists
