Partners is a mentoring program that matches an emerging artist with a disability or from another marginalized community with an established artist to work together for a year. Art Access pays the mentor artist and provides a budget for art supplies.
The main focus of the program is for the emerging artist to learn new artistic skills and about how to be a professional artist.
The Partners experience culminates in a group exhibit with all mentors and mentees sharing their work. We are grateful to the Bountiful Davis Art Center for hosting the exhibit for both 2020 and 2021 Partners in January 2022.
The application for Partners opens in December for the next calendar year and a link will be available here when it is open. If you have any questions, reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
