Teen artist in residence

Teen Artist-in-Residence
The Chester County Library is pleased to announce a call for teen artists for our inaugural Teen Artist in Residence Summer Program. The residency program provides an opportunity for teen artists to create inspiring work, advocate for the arts, and share their amazing talents with the community. The selected teen artist will hold regular studio hours at the library allowing the artist to create on-site sharing their creative process with library patrons as well as lead a workshop for youth in the community. The residency will culminate with a show of the teen artist’s work.

The Teen Artist in Residence program is open to Chester County teens currently in grades 9-12. Our ideal candidate is passionate about creating and wants to connect and share their passion with others. The teen artist does not need to have any formal art training or coursework.

All interested potential Teen Artist in Residence should apply online at by Thursday, June 1st. For additional information, please contact the Teen Artist in Residence team at
