TAG Program Info Session April 3rd At The Hive!

Hi Joe, 

I am the assistant director of a new teen art program called the Teen Artist Guild. The Director, David Brooks, and I have been fortunate to receive funding through the Massachusetts Cultural Council’s Youth Reach Grant.

The TAG program gives motivated students between the ages of 13-19 the opportunity to develop skill in the arts in the form of paid work and trains them to utilize their creativity to provide services to the community. To start off we will be taking on 15 student artists in the spring, and hopefully by the summer, be able to increase the number of artists, possibly even double.

TAG members will be paid an hourly wage working to provide artistic services to local business, such as painting store front windows, creating murals, or even printing t-shirts. TAG member will also be giving the opportunity to sell their own artworks through TAG. 50% of the commission goes back into the TAG program itself, while the other half goes to the artist, where they’ll be encouraged to donate 10% to a charity of their choice.

The program info session will be April 3rd at The Hive at 6:00 PM. The day is designed to share the program values and for students to get all the information needed to apply. On April 10th all applications will be in students will be notified by the 12th and will start April 16th. Students will meet Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday 6-8pm.
