NEW! ArtLab - Teen Afterschool Program
Do you like to make things? Do you like to learn how things work? Do you like to make a difference? ArtLab is the new Wednesday afterschool program designed for creative students ages 14-18 to create, design, prototype, and implement innovative studio projects for children of all ages in a fun, safe and supportive environment. Each year the Museum hosts public programs for hundreds of children and families, and we’re looking for a group of committed teens who enjoy learning about art, artists, and museums – a team with good ideas and talents, who like to work together and share – who want to apply those interests and skills to create memorable hands-on experiences for our visitors. Your imagination and vision will guide the Museum and together we’ll do awesome stuff.
Your voice and your choice are important! Space is limited! Complete and return the application (click here) and apply before September 7! Questions? Contact Shanti Sanchez at (772) 231-0707 x117 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
VBMA actively works with local partners to meet the needs of children and adults in our community – particularly the underserved. These activities insure the Museum is reaching as many individuals as possible to demonstrate that “art matters.” By working together with partners to align with their needs, efforts are magnified as each organization fulfills its respective mission. In 2012-13, the Museum is pleased to partner with:
School District of Indian River County (Gifford Middle School E.S.E. Class)
Dasie Bridgewater Hope Center
Drug Abuse Treatment Association (DATA) Norman Hayslip Center
Senior Resource Association
Alzheimer & Parkinson Association of Indian River County
Gifford Youth Activity Center
