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 8 month appointed position, they will be mentored by local professional artists to run community art programs or events. They 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 first responders. They learned from businesses and artists such as MOCapp, Juice Marketing, Molten Works, Surya Vanka an industrial designer, Rashawnna Williams a social change maker just to name a few.

Past teen councils have made a huge and positive impact on our community! They organized and hosted professional art shows, were featured on the radio and in the newspaper, and created a chalk mural at Celebrate Woodinville. They also learned how to fuse glass, how to create a successful portfolio, and run a council. They have created and distributed activity books for at risk children and have painted several murals with the help of mentors. Each year, the teens will be given the power and support needed to do even more amazing new projects and events they get to plan and implement while learning from professionals in a wide variety of creative fields.
