2020 LAB VIRTUAL EDITION - CLOSED

LAB (LOCUST ART BUILDERS): SUMMER ART INTENSIVE FOR TEENS

A summer art intensive for teens with an interest in art, design and exploring creative careers. LAB is free to all accepted students. For this year's virtual edition of LAB, all students will receive a $500 honoraria to participate (online attendance on Zoom and completing afterhours assignments are mandatory) in addition to a BUILDER BOX of supplies delivered to your door.

Program Dates: Starts Tuesday, July 7 through July 30, 2020; Tuesday-Thursday 1-3pm weekly

For four weeks, 25 selected young artists from high schools across Miami-Dade County will be invited to work with established contemporary artists in a dynamic online program to learn about the practical and creative aspects of mounting a public exhibition on a highly visible exterior space near Locust Projects' gallery in the Miami Design District to be on view 24/7 for two weeks after LAB. 

Celebrating its 10th Anniversary year, LAB encourages students to develop ideas and work collaboratively. This unique, hands-on program invites creative teens to widen their perspectives, connect with peers and established arts professionals, learn about creative careers, build their portfolio, and gain the behind-the-scenes experience of producing a collaborative project from scratch.
