Announcing Our New Education Program!
Embark Arts is thrilled to announce its first education program, Fort Mason Young Artists Summer Program! In partnership with the City College of San Francisco, this program offers two week-long summer classes to middle and high school students taught by current and recently graduated MFA students. These classes give the students the opportunity to work with emerging artists, learn about aspects of those artists' practices, and participate in a pop-up show at Embark Gallery! For the MFA student teachers, it provides a chance to gain teaching experience through the institution of City College and to match their practices to middle and high school pedagogy.

Education is one of the pillars of our mission at Embark from our focus on graduate students to professional development for emerging artists. Below are the emerging artist teachers and the courses they are offering. Please feel free to share this information with any students and parents you think would be interested in participating!

We are excited to offer two scholarships for students in need of financial aid. This aid is available regardless of artistic discipline and will fund one summer class per student. For information on how to apply, email Deadline for applications is Friday, May 19th.
