STAMP Statewide Teen Art Mentor Program

STAMP is designed to provide artists ages 13-19 an opportunity to exhibit their work in both Regional and State exhibits.  The program's goal is to encourage young artists to create and to be recognized for their work.  It also provides an AWA member, art organization or school to mentor a means to inspire a teen to make art a lifetime pursuit.   Each year juried STAMP Regional exhibitions are held throughout Wisconsin and are sponsored by AWA.  The young artists who receive State Awards at the Regional level have the opportunity to enter the juried State Conference exhibit.  This exhibit is held annually, cash awards are presented and the teen artwork is published in the AWA Annual Color Catalog.  If you are interested in having a STAMP exhibit in your area please contact, Jeanne Ferreira at president@wiscartists.org for areas south of Wausau or Bobby Walker at tbsix@aol.com for areas north of Wausau.  Please consider sponsoring young artists.
