THE BIG IDEA

Teach business skills to young artists and give them opportunities to sell.

Our first program teaches talented teen artists business, career and life skills as they prepare to sell their work at a fine art fair in Detroit.  This program is focused on Detroit emerging artists who are in high school, and open to all.

Artists from Detroit and the suburbs attend workshops on pricing, promotion, preparing for an event, talking about their art and more. They learn to protect their work by understanding copyright and intellectual property law. They receive e-letters with tips and ideas, mentoring and opportunities to show and pop up with Mint. If they attend and participate in our workshops and mentoring, they are ready for the Palmer Park Art Fair.

Artists interested in joining the Learn and Earn program are encouraged to visit us at one of the art fairs with a Mint group tent. They may apply to join us in the fall or in January.

Teens may apply online to be considered for Learn & Earn. Application deadlines are in August or mid January.
