Artists’ Studio in the Foothills’s YARP is a studio membership offering for high school seniors. This program is scheduled to continue through the fall and into the school year. YARP is a much less structured program than YAP and is designed to provide a weekly meeting space for young artists to create community, make art together, get support and mentoring from adult artists, learn about new art opportunities, connect with ASiF’s stable of professional resident artists and local and regional artists and more. Weekly meetings are non instructed sessions during which YARP members work side by side with a rotating group of adult resident and visiting artists offering camaraderie, mentoring and support.



YARP monthly membership is $30 and scholarships are available. 17-year-old applicants may apply with an 18-year-old co-member.

ASiF is accepting applications for YARP memberships now. Applicants are asked to fill out a short questionnaire for determining member’s needs and interests. YARP Members meet weekly on Thursdays and Saturdays from noon to 2 p.m. Visit http://www.asifstudios.com/young-artist-residency-program for more info and to apply.
