PlatteForum is proud to announce the ArtLab Interns of 2012! 15 students from 12 different schools representing the amazing diverse youth of the Denver area. ArtLab students are referred to the program by counselors, teachers, friends and other adults in their lives. To enter the program the students go through an application and interview process. The students are interviewed by staff, current ArtLab students and previous lead artists. The students will spend their Spring semester working with Creative Resident Jessica Kreutter, going through Artventures and experiencing the process of autodramas.

Instead of a clear day seeing snow fall makes dreams possible. Its snow flakes keeps me grounded and makes it possible to keep going. If Iím not swimming or playing tennis snow helps me dream of ways to keep reaching my goal.

I enjoy cooking and hope to study pre-med or biology at the University of
Colorado at Denver.
You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes.
You can steer yourself any direction you choose. Youíre on your own. And you
know what you know. And YOU are the guy whoíll decide where to go.
ChloŽ Jarisch, CEC Middle College
My name is Chloe. I love tacos, dinosaurs and punk rock! Iím
so excited to be in ArtLab. I feel like it will take me to great places and I
canít wait to get started!Adrian Lara, Thomas Jefferson High School
My name is Adrian. I like art, music, movies, anything
really that keeps me entertained. I wish I had a time machine because I want to
go back to when all the old things were new, when they were in and they were
popular. Sometimes I think it would be cool to go back and see what life was
like when things were less technologically advanced.

found with money.Ē - UnknownMarisha Steiner, Thomas Jefferson High School
Youíll get mixed up, of course, as you already know. So be
sure when you step, step with care and great tact and remember that lifeís a
Great Balancing Act. Just never forget to be dexterous and deft. And never mix
up your right foot with your left. Mauni Stillman, Bruce Randolph School
