Entry Deadline: December 1, 2016
Fleisher’s Teen Lounge provides young people with opportunities to work with experienced Teaching Artists from around the region. Participating teens evaluate proposals submitted by Teaching Artists through the RFP (Request for Proposals) process. Teen Lounge at Fleisher Art Memorial is accepting project proposals from teaching artists for paid residencies.
A PDF version of the RFP can be requested by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
The deadline is November 30th, 2016 for projects in January – March 2017. We will be selecting six visiting artists, who are compensated up to $600 for 4 sessions with a supply budget of $150. Artists will be asked to attend a proposal review fair scheduled for December 7th, 2016 to meet Teen Lounge students, who will then vote to select the artists they want to work with in the winter. The workshops should offer young people, between the ages 13 and 18, exciting opportunity to be introduced to a medium or explore a theme of relevance to this age group and be completed in 6-8 hours (3-4 sessions) maximum. Experimental workshop proposals are welcome. The sessions will be held on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 3:30 to 6:00 pm. Up to 20 students attend our Teen Lounge daily, from a variety of levels in art making experiences.
