“I learned so much being a part of Space One Eleven at a level of experience I would not have been able to attain in any college class or workshop. It was almost a familial experience with Peter and Anne and I miss them dearly! I will never forget the time I spent there and I am greatly appreciative of the opportunity I was granted to experience a part of the art world that is rarely seen by students.”
– Brittni S Palmore

Alabama Charcoal Art Mentors: We are looking for caring and creative artists and professionals to mentor high school students.  The goal is to inspire and facilitate creative, academic, and personal achievements in the students. Mentors should have strong drawing skills. This will be a rewarding experience because mentors will have clear, teaching responsibilities, an opportunity to work in Space One Eleven’s professional studios, and impact high school student’s development.

Alabama Charcoal Writing Mentors: We are looking for writing mentors to tutor seniors on their college applications and essays. Writing mentors will have the responsibility to organize writing workshops and have the availability to meet with students individually to edit and brainstorm college essays. Strong writing skills are necessary, as well as the ability to commit to at least 1 hour a week. Writing mentors must have gone through the college application process to apply for this opportunity.
