Each semester, Las Fotos Project selects 30 Artist Mentors to participate in our after-school and weekend photography programs. Arts mentoring at Las Fotos Project is a wonderful opportunity for artists and educators to work with middle school and high school students in a community setting.
In the past, Artist Mentors have been college students, graduate students, and/or artists from the community. Emerging artists are preferred. Because Las Fotos Project emphasizes peer-to-peer and participatory learning, artist mentors must be able to connect on a personal and artistic level with teenagers.
Artist Mentors are caring individuals, willing to learn, open to taking risks, and able to commit three hours per week for 12 weeks. Concurrent with their mentoring hours, mentors are invited to participate in a professional development program to support their growth as artists and educators.
