Outpost and the Ridgewood Youth Coalition are proud to announce our new program of studio visits with local artists starting January 30, 2016 with a visit to colaborating artists Amanda Trager and Erik Moskowitz.

The program, “Work, Learn, Grow”, is sponsored by the Department of Youth and Cultural Development. The goal is to get kids to start understanding what it is to have a job, the value of work, financial literacy and self reflection. Our particular group is following a curriculum devised by artist/educator Magin Schantz called “Artists as Entrepreneurs”, it uses art-making to help teens get to know themselves, their skills, strengths and areas to work on. Magic will be assisted by writer/photographer Mia Matthias. We will host a show of their results on April 15th in the gallery.
