About Bodecker Cohorts

We believe that real growth happens over time. That's why we've created an opportunity for students to build relationships with mentors and peers over the course of a school year. We are introducing three cohorts– small groups of dedicated, emerging student artists–that will meet twice monthly to learn, practice, and share. Each group is distinct. Students apply for ONE of the following cohorts:

WORDS - writing with a focus on daily writing practices, poetry, short stories, and publishing.

SOUNDS - music and audio engineering, signal flow equipment setup, tools and terminology, and studio etiquette.

VISUALS - fine art with a focus on drawing techniques, color theory, and portfolio development.

October through May - Students meet from 10AM to 3PM one Saturday a month for in-person learning and once virtually for 1:1 or small group mentorship. Additionally, students will work independently to develop personal art practices. Students in the cohorts will dedicate about 8-10 hours a month to in-person, virtual, and self-led learning.

Our cohorts are designed for student artists who are serious about growing their skills. Students should be able to commit to all meeting days and be open to constructive feedback. Additionally, we understand that student time is valuable so students who participate in 80% of program are eligible for $500 upon completion to compensate their time and effort.

Applications for the 2024-2025 Cohorts will drop early fall 2024. Follow us on Instagram and sign up for our newsletter to stay informed.
