how to apply

If you want to join the Collective you must:

  • do art a lot on your own time, beyond art class
  • commit at least 2 afternoons/week for 3-4hrs each time (8 hours/week)
  • want to become an active part of a creative community

Here’s what you need to do:
  1. Visit the studios to get a feel for it
  2. Pick up an application
  3. Interviews are on Thursdays by appointment. Bring a completed application with several examples of your art, two recommendations (from a teacher and a member of the community). This is not a portfolio review. We just want to see you are motivated to do your own self generated work . There are no assignments here. Parents are welcome to come to the interview. Bring current artwork, sketchbook, photos/digital images, and your enthusiasm.
  4. You will hear back from us in 1-2 weeks. Space is limited. Sometimes there is a waiting list for newly accepted YACsters.
