Teen Insiders Project (TIP) – Visual Art for the Next Generation

Ethan Turpin and VADA students, 2012

This eight-month program is designed to foster a lifelong love of visual art for the next generation. Teen Insiders Project (TIP) follows a curiosity-based, hands-on curriculum, giving students access to professional artists' studios, curators, art collections, art historians, and an annual field trip to Los Angeles.

TIP begins in October 2013 and ends in June 2014, meeting twice a month: every first Wednesday from 3:30 – 5 pm and every first Saturday (times TBD, as this day is reserved for field trips).

Admission to TIP is through an application process and is open to high school students starting their sophomore or junior year in fall 2013.
