 This is an independent studies program for artistically gifted adolescents in grades 9-12 + OAC. Our goal is to provide a modest support system of mentoring in skills development, folio preparation, career counseling, and peer friendships as young people consider post secondary education, and professional work as artists. We meet at my home studio on Monday nights (Oakville) and at the Flagship gallery (Hamilton) to work on individual art projects. We visit galleries, and other professionals working in a variety of visual career choices. We study various related issues that pertain to the work of artists, as seen from a Christian world view. We are also available to parents, art teachers and guidance counselors to help them help their young people make wise choices that affirm their dignity and range of callings in the arts.
