School 33 Art Center


Beginning in late 2008, School 33 has initiated the Studio Artists’ Mentoring Program as a commitment to fostering artistic growth in Baltimore. In addition to Open Studios and rotating studio visits, the Mentor Program culminates with a Biennial Studio Artists’ Exhibition at School 33. The Studio Artists' Exhibition is presented in conjunction with the annual city wide arts festival, Artscape.

The Mentor Program is intended to support artists in three distinct ways:
1.    Provide exposure for Studio Artists through monthly Open Studios, the Biennial Studio Artist Exhibition, and special events held at School 33.

2.    Provide critical and constructive feedback through individual and group critiques with other Studio Artists and Guest Critics.

3.    Cultivate a sense of community between the artists-in-residence through meetings, group critiques, and exhibition opportunities.

Artists-in-residence are also encouraged to open their studios to the public during exhibition openings and special events held at School 33, but are not required.
