The ACCESS/PRINT Project (A/P Project) is a young artists’ mentorship program for high school students in grades 10–12. The selected participants must be highly motivated and committed to creating a strong portfolio that will be exhibited in the gallery at Highpoint. Participants will work with professional artist mentors at Highpoint’s printshop to learn printmaking processes including monoprinting, drypoint etching, relief block printing and screenprinting. After this introductory period, participants will plan an independent project that uses one or more of these techniques. Through individual mentorship, peer critique and supervised work sessions young artists will develop printmaking skills and gain confidence in their art-making.
Applicants must be available to meet at Highpoint after school twice a week. A/P artists must attend a minimum number of sessions in order to participate in the gallery exhibit. Four applicants will be selected for the project each session.
Fall sessions end in mid-December and Spring sessions end in late April. Students will need transportation to and from Highpoint or be able to use the Metro Transit system (passes paid for by Highpoint). The A/P Project is free; we invite any interested students in grades 10–12 to apply.
