You get paid to be creative which is something you don’t really get to experience in school (or otherwise). Sometimes I call this school because you’re getting educated in the way if you were to pay someone. I feel like I’m getting college-level teaching and education from JXTA. And you’re getting paid for it, which is crazy.

All-original works of painted, printed, and ceramic art styled by expression.

Building upon their training in VALT (Visual Art Literacy Training), Contemporary Art Lab apprentices produce original canvas paintings, block prints, ceramic sculptures, and other mixed-media works for a range of clients and projects. Under the guidance of professional multidisciplinary artists, students in Contemporary Art Lab develop their practice in the medium(s) of their choice and are offered the creative freedom to explore their artistic voice and vision through their work.


The original works produced in this lab are perfectly suited for purchase by the experienced and novice collector alike. Works are also often exhibited in the JXTA Gallery and other local institutions; most recently, a collection of ceramic works by apprentices was exhibited at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts. Looking for something more interactive? Contemporary Art Lab artists can also provide live art-making demonstrations for events.
