Artist Mentorship Program
The KSMoCA Artist Mentorship program pairs working artists in the Portland area with K - 8th grade students at MLK Jr. public school in a long-term mentorship relationship. Volunteer mentors spend an hour a week with their mentee in an open studio that is designed to foster, model and support the development of individual creative practice.
The Artist Mentorship Program provides focused one-on-one support that we hope to extend to each student at the school, and creates opportunities for mentees to experience first-hand what it is like to be an artist. Each mentor is paired with a selected student with the hope that they will form a meaningful relationship over the course of the school year and can explore artistic approaches that interest both people.
