About the Teen Residency

RedLine Milwaukee’s Teen Residency program serves Milwaukee teens who are committed to further developing their involvement in visual art. Teen Residents receive mentoring from RedLine’s established and emerging artists, collaborate with internationally and locally recognized visiting artists, and lead demonstrations for their peers once a month at Contemporary Teen Nights. The six residents meet together each week for two hours with their mentor and the Education Manager.

While a great deal of time is devoted to personal portfolio development, the program also asks residents to consider the socio-political role of art in local and global contexts — and how their own practice can provide compelling insights in these arenas. Through engaging with the RedLine community, honing professional skills as they relate to art and social practice, and visiting artist-run spaces throughout Milwaukee, residents explore the lasting effects that an engaged artistic practice can have on community.

We seek to help equip teens with

– a sense of autonomy and integrity in their professional pursuits;
– an ability to trust their own uniqueness, using self-directed projects to pursue their particular interests;
– the kinetic and procedural knowledge necessary to operate a printing press;
– the ability to speak comfortably in front of their peers;
– and the tools they may need to make creative contributions on a local level for the health of their communities.

RedLine Milwaukee’s Teen Residency program is made possible by the Mary L. Nohl Fund of the Greater Milwaukee Foundation, which enables us to offer this unique opportunity to teens without program fees.
