Is in collaboration with the Heritage Cultural Arts Festival in downtown Atlanta and the first of a two-part art series to bridge gaps in the community and help empower homeless youth through art.
Professional artists are invited to apply for SpringBoard as an opportunity to showcase their artwork and pursue a short-term (2 week) mentorship in which artists guide our young artists through their creative work processes as they prepare for their first professional art show: DualConcepts.
Artists are selected by a 5 panel jury to participate in SpringBoard and to earn a mentorship opportunity. Participants play a huge role in inspiring and guiding our young artists. We are excited about both parties coming together to share stories and break down barriers! Artwork stays up in the gallery throughout the Heritage Cultural Arts Festival (July 18-21).

Invites our young artists from emergency housing organizations around Atlanta to apply for the DualConcepts Art Show. This show is an opportunity for youth who are interested in art to learn new skills and be featured in a professional art show.
Youth will receive art materials to create their artwork and 2 weeks of working time. Professional artists will be paired with youth to help guide them past the blank white canvas to the concept brewing in those craniums!
At the show, young artists will showcase and sell their artwork. All canvases will be sold in giclee form at a standard price. DualConcepts artists receive 80% of their sales revenue*. ChopArt has designed a whole team of people to stand behind the young artists ensuring that they will be prepared and confident for their big show!
