Planning for a Career in Art after High School
Gateway provides transitional services for young adults with disabilities, preparing them for professional careers.
This service is an opportunity for individuals to cultivate pre-vocational skills, enhance their self-esteem, and transition successfully to a career in the arts.
Gateway provides a community of other young adults and practicing artists of all ages in a supportive, diversified community where participants make valuable connections and help each other through the challenges that can accompany transition and change. This support takes the form of interactive learning, feedback, conversation, and friendships that help build confidence and real world skills.

Requirements for Admission
Artists interested in the program must be at least 18 years of age, in school or post graduation, and exploring art as a career option. Previous training is not required, but a strong interest in art and the ability to work within a shared studio environment with other artists is necessary.
