We’re Still Mentoring!

posted on April 4, 2020 by

It’s been over 20 days since we had to shutter our studios in downtown Monterey, but we didn’t disappear. We moved YAC’s program to an online clubhouse to keep them engaged with their art, each other, and their mentors. Mentors are currently working on demos and other videos, and we’re hoping to do some of our next Artist Interviews and Alumni Profiles in video format.

In addition, we have two zoom meetups a week where we come together and do art while we talk… like an afternoon at YAC studios. It’s a touchstone in these weird times offering inspiration and comfort so they stay productive and a little less lonely. We also call every one of them every other week to check in personally and let them know we are here for them.

You can follow us on our usual IG and FB accounts where we’ll periodically share some of our clubhouse activity with YAC friends and supporters.
We were in the middle of our annual March 30/30 art challenge when we had to shutter YAC. But most of us actually finished the 30 days (albeit late) anyway. Have a look at some of it at #3030atyac

Since the YACsters are now adjusting to many hours a day online with their schoolwork, we are starting a new set of weekly (rather than daily) art prompts. And as an outreach to our community, we invite the public to join in. Stay tuned. Starts this week! Join us – it’s going to be fun! All ages, artists and non-artists welcome.
