LINK Members (students, volunteers, and artists) have to be logged in to register for a LINK workshop or meeting. You can log in from the navigation or directly on the event detail page. Once you're logged in, you'll see a "register" button for future events.
Semi-public events, like the Gallery Show, will not require user login to RSVP.
Contact the Tech Team if you need a Link Program web site login.
Students should arrive by 8:45 am to sign in and grab a bite to eat.
Volunteers, Staff & Guest Artists should arrive between 8:15 am and 8:30 am for set-up and to grab a bite to eat.
We start promptly at 9:00 am.

This is a volunteer-run organization, so the students' success is dependent on the volunteers, and volunteers have a made a commitment to ensure the students are supported.
Students: we often carry a waiting list, so after two unexcused absences, you'll forfeit your spot. Remember you are the reason we are here, please contact us if you're having trouble attending.
Volunteers: we understand how busy life gets; attend more workshops & meetings than you miss.
Easy! Contact us via Remind, email or phone (206) 427-8044.
It's very important to be on time, to be fair to the Guest Artist and to the other students. But if you happen to be late, contact us via Remind or (206) 427-8044.
Again, communication is key. Contact us via email, Remind or (206) 427-8044.
Keep it! And keep it neat. These may be portfolio pieces for you and we'd love to include it in our year-end Gallery Show Exhibition.
Scholarships are available for LINK students nearing graduation. Attend workshops regularly and the information will be provided to eligible LINK students.
It benefits you to remain engaged for the duration of the workshop. However, we will make exceptions for emergencies or quickly snapping photos of your work to share on social media to promote your talent or LINK — don't get too disengaged.
When posting, remember to mention and tag us @aigalinkprogram #thelinkprogram — there may be a reward in it for you.
9th- through 12th-grade Students in the Seattle metropolitan area with a passion for art.
Not a thing! It's FREE. All you have to do is register and attend.
You’ll need to fill out an application and have a parent/guardian sign it. Contact the LINK Program Director to get a copy of the application.
Optimally, right at the start of the school year. But even if it's later, you can register at any time; if we’re full we can add you to the waiting list. Occasionally a few spots open up mid-Fall or early in the new year.
Returning students, then it's first come, first served.
To Volunteer with the LINK program, you must pass a background check, be committed to helping out at least 3 workshops during 2018-2019. You should have an interest in working with students, developing the next generation of artists/designers, and have an interest in or practice art/design.
If you have a skill that you feel could be beneficial to the organization but is more of a virtual role, we'd love to hear about it, please contact our Program Director.
