Call to Artists: ARTlab

The Frist Art Museum seeks local and regional art professionals to develop ARTlabs. These innovative youth workshops provide rare in-studio opportunities for Nashvillians 18 and younger to learn collaborative techniques, leadership roles, and processes from practicing artists. ARTlabs also culminate in a final showcase of the teens’ artwork, in the community and sometimes at the Frist Art Museum.

Preference will be given to projects that promote mutual respect and understanding between people, and, engage youth and their peers, teachers and students, and people from different neighborhoods or backgrounds.

Projects should help youth acquire experience in visual thinking, problem-solving skills, leadership, and technical artistry in real-life studio environments.

ARTlabs typically range from four hours to two days. They may take place at the Frist Art Museum or various community centers around Davidson County.

JOB DESCRIPTION:  In coordination with Frist Art Museum educators, develop and lead a hands-on studio-based workshop for youth ages 11–18.
