What is a Program Leader? A program leader acts as an experienced guide to young artists exploring their creativity and engaging in self-discovery. Working closely with ART 180 staff and a program assistant, they create a safe space for approximately 15 young people (up to 20) to be and express themselves. Program leaders combine art instruction and creative exploration; adult guidance and the ideas and interests of youth; and community building and the development of each young artist’s unique voice.
What is a Program Assistant? Program assistants provide support to the program leader to guide young artists in exploring their creativity and engaging in self-discovery. A program assistant supports the program's art instruction and helps encourage creative exploration.
