Presented by The Whitney Gallery at The Whit Gallery

The YAXP is an opportunity for them to get a full understanding of the artist’s life, from all aspects– personal, spiritual, professional, and financial. They are taught not what to create, but how to execute the ideas so they are clear and impactful.

Each week (with some breaks) we explore different tools for expression. I firmly believe in NOT teaching how I do my art, but rather how to find materials that serve one’s vision.

They will make their own sketchbook, gather their favorite art supplies, discover something about themselves and each other.
We will build a visual language together, while building trust with our peers. We will familiarize ourselves with what artists have done in the past, but realize that we are making our own future.

Familial support is a huge part of my own success, so I provide resources for parents and supporters to encourage each child’s journey.
Sometimes this is gathering specific materials, or maybe it’s carving out a special space for your child. Either way, it’s about showing that you appreciate the gifts your child needs to continue to explore as they grow into amazing adults. Many of my tips are low cost, because it’s all about the discussion. Sometimes it is a recommended art exhibition or special event. Other times it might be a suggested supply that they would love to receive as a gift!

This program takes place in an amazing gallery space but we also have access to many exhibition spaces in the region. We will always discuss how an art piece will be presented, priced, and seen in different settings. Opportunities are there, I just want young artists to be prepared to seize those opportunities with professionalism and confidence.

No matter what medium the young artists are interested in, they will learn from professional artists along the way. Working together within a beautiful gallery setting, not only is inspiring, but is also fuel for their desire to be life-long creatives.
Heidi Jeub will be their primary mentor and instructor, yet, artists will come and go into their activities, filling gaps Heidi cannot fulfill. She is nationally recognized in the arts, and has a 20+ year experience as an artist, and over 15 years working with youth. She is the curator of the Whit Gallery, and owner of the Tiny School of Art & Design. She was raised in this community, and understands many of the experiences these kids have in this place.
