Reaching Forward

The Reaching Forward Student Mentor Program is designed to provide professional development in the arts for 17-22-year-olds, while presenting positive role models for middle school students in an engaging professional studio and museum environment.

Student Mentors work with skilled teaching-artists and educators and receive training to support Art on the Edge (AOTE), PAAM’s Saturday arts program for 11 to 14-year-olds. Mentors aid AOTE students in the creation of artwork in a variety of media over two semesters in the fall and winter/spring. Art on the Edge student work is featured in exhibitions in the Museum galleries and Museum School exhibition spaces.

Reaching Forward is supported in part by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency; Ted Jones and Peter Petas; the Bilezikian Family Foundation; the Aeroflex Foundation; an anonymous donor, and in partnership with the Provincetown, Nauset and Monomoy school systems and Cape Cod Community College.
