Budding Artists Mentorship Program


Umbrella is excited to launch its Budding Artists Mentorship (BAM) initiative. In 2017, four Umbrella members will be selected according to their proposed project, and Umbrella will match them with a top-level industry professional, and $500 worth of materials toward their project.

The project is open to Umbrella members under the age of thirty, who work in any visual arts discipline, with a project that will take them to the next level of their artistic development. This project is supported by La Luna Youth Arts, and La Luna members are also strongly encouraged to apply.
