Fort Lauderdale – Eleven teenage artists showcased and sold their art on Saturday, Feb. 27 in the FATVillage Art District, thanks to ArtStART 2016, a mentoring program by ceramics artist Cheryl Brown.
“Mentoring students helps to grow the local art culture,” Brown explains. “The best way of keeping young talent in their home communities is to remind them what these communities have to offer. ArtStART 2016 demonstrated that there is a place for student artists in our local art culture, and it teaches them how to secure this place.”

Broward College Program Trains Young Artists And Designers
A new program at Broward College seeks to train the next generation of South Florida artists and designers. The school earned national certification for the Visual Arts and Design Academy – becoming the first community college in the South to have that. Florida’s higher education system has put a focus on training workers for health care and other high-demand fields in recent years. And lawmakers have encouraged school districts to start career-training programs. But the National Endowment for the Arts estimates the arts contribute $500 billion to the nation’s economy each year. And leaders of the Broward College program argue the arts and technology are tied together.
“People don’t realize the relationship, frequently, between science and art,” said Broward College art professor Leo Stitsky. “If we do away with pure science there would be no computer. If we do away with art there would be no Apple.” Stitsky says most of the students in the Visual Arts and Design Academy are just developing their artistic voice. The students must apply and go through a jury process before they are admitted to the program. Many students are like Josh Cartwright, a student from Dillard’s High Tech Digital Art & Design Magnet. He showed talent, but said he didn’t think of studying art or design until the high school teacher recommended the program. “When I was graduating high school I wasn’t really into art yet,” Cartwright said. “I knew I could draw and do, like, small projects.” Now Cartwright is interested in creating user interfaces and apps for phones, tablets or computers.
Dillard's Digital Design and Visual Art graduates make up the majority of the student population accepted into the Academy. Kudos to Alyssa Camacho, Piero Penizzotto, Briyana Butler, Rasi Moore, Kendy Calixte, Cesar Valero, Ruth Barotte, Gaby Pabon and many others accepted into this prestigious program.
