Know a teen that loves art and wants to connect with the community?
The Woodinville Arts Alliance selects a group of teens who show great leadership skills each school year to participate on the Woodinville Teen Arts Alliance council. During their year-long appointed position, they will be mentored by local professional artists and have the opportunity to run 1-3 community programs and are given the opportunity to share their voice and the power to make a difference.
In past years, the teen council worked together to paint a peace pole to commemorate the first responders during Covid. They learned from businesses and artists such as MOCapp, Juice Marketing, Molten Works, and Rashawnna Williams. They organized and hosted a professional art show, appeared on the radio and in the newspaper several times, created a chalk mural at Celebrate Woodinville and learned how to create a successful portfolio. They also learned how to fuse glass, and created a coloring book for distribution to at risk tots. In 2021/2022, the teens will have even more amazing opportunities and can make it as grand as they can envision. Our community event will be a gymnasium mural at a local school. We will also schedule several new local creative professionals to come in and teach the teens about a career in their field. The teens will be given the power and support needed to do additional projects and events they plan.
