Teen Activities Art Club Grand JunctionBAM empowers underrepresented teens through art and business mentorship with local artists. We welcome all youth ages 12-21 to check out BAM art club and community events. BAM is an art community where youth can make friends, have fun, and use art as an outlet. We provide a safe space for youth to:

      • Form healthy peer groups
      • Meet local artists
      • Create with quality art supplies
      • Connect to community resources
      • Gain life & business skills through community engagement
      • Experience selling their art at community events
      • Cultivate their art skills & learn new skills

At BAM local artists in the Valley serve as mentors, sharing insights into their art businesses, building relationships with youth and empowering them to plan, produce, perform, and sell their art. There is no cost, required commitment or skill level for youth to participate, and the skills they develop will last them a lifetime.


BAM! Operates under Trail Lamp Youth Services, a Colorado nonprofit 501(c)(3) public charity. We rely on donations, sponsors and volunteers to keep our BAM program at no cost to underserved youth in Western Colorado. Your contribution helps us continue to exist and to grow, and provides underrepresented youth with art supplies, education and community experiences which inspire, empower, and lead to new opportunities.
