The Emerging Artists-in-Residence Program (EAR) is a six-month residency for NYC youth emerging artists between the ages of 17-20 that have exhibited exceptional artistic talent but lack the resources and support to turn these talents into opportunities for their future. The EAR program provides residents with a rigorous schedule of coursework, project creation, networking, paid internships, showcase opportunities, a transportation stipend and career-counseling in the creative professional industries. Residents go on to use their creative talents and professionalism to become art students, performers, and above all, responsible young adults with a clear vision and a plan for their personal success.
Art Start is currently working with three three young residents for the June-December, 2014 session and continues to engage our alumni residents on multiple projects.
