About AK Teens

The new AK Teens program, presented by First Niagara, is a dynamic mentoring program serving teens from across Western New York and Southern Ontario. Designed to mentor young adults seeking to pursue careers in creativity and the arts, AK Teens will provide a platform for young artists to exhibit their work, and to prepare portfolios, which are vital for admission to college arts programs. The program offers workshops and mentoring on subjects ranging from making art to working in the arts, and even public speaking.
