If you are a teen who’s into art, this program is for you. The Next Sun Rising is a tuition-free, independent projects program designed for South Side high school artists (grades 9-12). Check out images from The Whole Yadig?!  2018 teen exhibition to see some of our teens and artworks. This program requires teens to complete an application form (below). Applicants are asked to present a vision for what they will work on. How many pieces will you be aiming to complete? Using what media? What meaning? What supplies will you require? How would you like the final project to look? These questions help you spell out what you would like to work on. Teaching Artists, Assistance, guest visitors, and Art Center staff will help support your vision. Attendance and active participation are a large part of this program, so if accepted, teen artists must work with parents and school schedules to plan ahead and participate responsibly.

Accepted teens will have access to free materials and equipment guided by Lavie Raven and Lamiah Gholar for exhibition, portfolio, artist statement, and a better understanding of what it means to be a contemporary artist.
