2018 Youth Visual Arts Mentoring Program


The FASM Youth Visual Arts Mentoring Program is an initiative created for Milton youth interested in pursuing art as a career or hobby. They are brought together with local professional artists in a 4-workshop series to learn about art and techniques, and mentored one-on-one to help them prepare art for a portfolio.  This year, the 4 workshops will be on Sundays from 1 to 4 pm on the following dates: March 25th, (skip Easter Sunday), April 8th, 15th, and 22nd. Immediately following the series of workshops, two pieces per student will be shown in a 3-week collective exhibit in the Holcim Gallery at the FirstOntario Arts Centre Milton.

Each year, the students choose a them for the exhibition.  In 2016, the theme was “#WeAreTheEarth” to reflect the importance of nature in creativity and the concern of our youth to preserve and protect the environment of our planet.
