The Professional Mentoring Program is a collaboration between First Thursdays Art Walk and Laguna College of Art + Design, teaming member galleries with graduating senior students.
Graduating seniors are assigned to galleries throughout the city to learn more about the business side of art. The program culminates with the December Art Walk where the gallery shows the student art in their gallery. All proceeds from the sale go directly to the student and the First Thursdays Art Walk/LCAD Scholarship fund.
- Attend Opening Night on December 7, 2017 from 6pm to 9pm and help a developing artist take their first steps into the professional art world by purchasing their work in participating galleries. 50% of the proceeds go directly to the student and 50% to the First Thursdays Art Walk/LCAD Scholarship fund.
- Support the First Thursdays Art Walk/LCAD Scholarship Fund. 100% of your contribution goes directly into the scholarship fund.
