WORKSHOPS

How do I register or RSVP for a workshop, meeting or event?

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.

What time should I arrive for LINK workshops?

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.

If I drive, where can I park?

For the 2019-2020 school year, we are holding workshops at Seattle Pacific University Art Center. Street parking is available.

Parents, we appreciate you dropping students off, and we'd LOVE if you could offer carpool assistance to other students in need.  Please contact us if you're available to support in this capacity.

Is transportation assistance available for students?

Parents, we'd LOVE if you could offer carpool assistance to students in need. Please contact us if you're available to support in this capacity.

Do I have to attend all LINK workshops?

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. 

How do students get an "excused absence"?

Easy! Contact us via Remind, email or phone (206) 427-8044.

What if I'm running late?

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.

What if I have to leave early?

Again, communication is key. Contact us via email, Remind or (206) 427-8044.

What should students do with the work create at LINK?

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.

How do students apply for a LINK Scholarship?

Scholarships are available for LINK students nearing graduation. Attend workshops regularly and the information will be provided to eligible LINK students.

Can students use their phones during workshops?

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.

Can students bring a guest?

We don’t have much extra space but if there is a special circumstance, let us know in advance via email, Remind or (206) 427-8044.


STUDENTS, PARENTS & GUARDIANS

Who is eligible for LINK?

 9th- through 12th-grade Students in the Seattle metropolitan area with a passion for art.

How much does LINK cost?

Not a thing! It's FREE. All you have to do is register and attend.

How do students apply for LINK?

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.

When should students apply for LINK?

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.

Do you offer priority registration?

Returning students, then it's first come, first served.


VOLUNTEERS

What’s required to volunteer at LINK?

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.
