Call for Fabric Artists




Program Overview:  Art for Learning’s Fresh StART program engages students in a school-based effort to improve their community through art. In a series of workshops, students and their families identify what they could do to improve their neighborhood or space. Students are encouraged through various art forms to share their thoughts about a particular topic. The students’ artworks in a form of, but not limited to, a story, dance, poem, sculpture, will serve as the inspiration for the final work produced by a professional artist.

Project Goal: To design and produce an indoor installation for a 32 ft wide x 7.10 ft high wall. Designs must illustrate inspiration from the students’ personal narratives.


  • Design ideas must clearly depict student voice
  • Ability to present two design ideas for voting by the school community
  • Must participate in a culminating event
  • Respond to communications in a timely manner
  • Document the progress of the work on social media to keep the students informed
  • Enter into a contractual agreement with Arts for Learning and agree to a background check

$5,000: All-inclusive fee for artist fee, materials, production, cost of installation, transportation, and other related expenses. 2/3 of the amount will be paid at the start of the project; final payment will be released upon completion.
