ArtLab is a paid internship opportunity for students to take workshops and create artwork with professional artists over the course of their high school career. Artists come from all disciplines and backgrounds to share about their practice and skill sets. Students meet at Platte Forum on Saturdays during the school year and 2-3 days a week in the summer. Once selected, students remain in ArtLab until the summer after they graduate high school. Students with freshman, sophomore or junior standing are eligible to apply.
PlatteForum, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, supports contemporary artists and youth from historically marginalized communities in metro Denver through innovative, long-term arts programs that allow the youth to work side-by-side with artists in residence. This award-winning nonprofit organization provides a nurturing space where creativity and artistic excellence are highly valued and where artists and youth partner together to plan, produce, and exhibit a body of work to the public. The overall experience transforms the lives of the youth, the artists and the community.
