The goals of the Inkubator Program are to allow youth who have recently graduated from the Youth Outreach Program to expand their experience with printmaking techniques, to become more independent in the studio and to receive critical feedback on their ideas. This is accomplished through a twelve-week program that sees each participant working on a self-directed project-based exploration, using one or more of the printmaking techniques they learned in the Youth Outreach Program. At the weekly classes participants will have support from an experienced printmaking instructor. Three times during the program, professional artists will be engaged to provide a critique on the participants’ projects.
The application process includes a written proposal describing the project and which techniques will likely be used. Participants are responsible for completing monthly written progress reports on their project. Access to the studio is granted to the participants for the twelve weeks of the program during regular studio hours (10:00 – 5:00, Monday – Friday), and some materials are provided. The Inkubator Program is free to qualifying youth.
