I found that the “Love” in One Love Generation is evident within the interactions of staff, mentors, and adult artists with the teens that are from a variety of schools around Atlanta. The studio environment provides a safe and constructive outlet for our local teens to explore expression, have a voice among peers, and be recognized for their unique individual and collective talents.
When spreading the word about this program to other parents of teens, I often use three words in three phrases:
- urban art studio
- teen artist collective
- community based art
This provides a spring-board for further dialog.
Each time I have attended an OLG event, the collective feeling that these teens are guided, not drilled, in artistic exploration galvanizes my appreciation of this amazing program.
Friday, May 16th, is OLG’s annual GALLERY SHOW. Join us at the Rodriguez Room Gallery at The Goat Farm Arts Center to celebrate the young artists of OLG and their amazing work. Proceeds will benefit OLG, the young artists, as well as a cause of their choice. Music, beverages, and light snacks will be provided. RSVP Here.
