arts-X-press counselors

counselors lead and mentor students through a week of taking creative risks and embracing the magic of each moment. Counselors live in the dorms with the students and are their first line of support for learning about themselves through the arts. Many are alumni of the program, so they come with experience of knowing exactly what this magical week has in store for our arts-X-press students.

“As a counselor at arts-X-press, I was able to really be and show my authentic self, which I think is really helpful when being a leader. Being a counselor was one of the best things this summer for sure. All the counselors were so nice, funny, caring, and so willing to share any advice they had if I ever had a problem or concern from their previous experiences. I can’t stop talking about the experience!” — Annie, arts-X-press counselor
