jumpstART, a collaboration between CUE Art Foundation and the Joan Mitchell Foundation, is an intensive after-school program for high school students with an aptitude for and demonstrated interest in the visual arts. Contiguous semesters concentrate on college and portfolio preparation, guiding students through the process of conceiving of, organizing, promoting, and curating their own group exhibition. jumpstART participants work closely with artists, designers, printers, curators, public-speaking coaches, and arts administrators. Students are exposed to a broad range of career opportunities in the arts, while learning key skills that will be applicable to all aspects of their professional lives, with the goal of providing each participant with practical business skills in addition to fine arts training.
Artist-Teachers for 2012 – 2013 were Cevan Castle and Rebeca Raney.
