Give for Greatness is pleased to announce a Students For the Arts apprenticeship for western New York arts and cultural organizations. The family and teen focused event and fundraising campaign will hold a meet and greet at the Buffalo Arts Studio to kick off G4G’s 2012 Give Season on February 20, 2012.
G4G has selected 11 high school students to be mentored by various local professional artists. Mentors include digital photographer and owner of 464 Gallery Marcus Wise, glass artist Cassondra Argeros, and Senior Education Associate for Shea’s Performing Arts Center, Jennifer Fitzery. The rally on February 20, 2012 marks the beginning of the event as each student embarks on his or her four-week apprenticeship. Students will prepare a performance or develop a collection of works to be presented or displayed at the festival scheduled to take place during the third week of March.
In addition to giving students the unique artistic opportunity to be mentored by local professional artists, G4G has also designed its Students For the Arts event to feature organizations in the area that have existing youth arts education opportunities. G4G will be collaboration with seven organizations, including Young Audiences of Western New York, Sugar City, Torn Space Theatre, Shea’s Performing Arts Center, Configuration Dance, Peace of the City, and Buffalo Arts Studio to highlight some of many established programs in the Greater Buffalo-Niagara region.
The festival is open to the public and all of the proceeds will benefit Give For Greatness and its beneficiaries. For more information contact firstname.lastname@example.org
