YOUTH ART PROGRAMS
"Committed to Providing Free Art Programs to Youth"
We are a group of like-minded business entrepreneurs, artists, teachers, and community volunteers committed to providing free art programs that are easily accessible to youth. We are teaming up with schools, community leaders, and local businesses to ensure that student art exhibitions are featured prominently throughout the city. Through our endeavors, we hope to showcase what powerful changes can be made in communities when people and programs join together and work towards a better tomorrow, today.
All classes are free to students, thanks to the support of our sponsors and volunteers.

DID YOU KNOW...
Did you know that youth in the arts leads to greater success in schools, regardless of socioeconomic status? Youth enrolled in art programming share cognitive and developmental benefits including higher grades, higher scores on standardized tests, increased community service, and lower dropout rates. It has been shown that participation in the arts improves higher-order thinking skills; those skills required by today's businesses, such as nimbleness in judgment, cooperative decision-making, leadership, high-level literacy, effective communication and problem-solving skills. Further, art participation helps prevent youth from getting involved in negative extracurricular activities in addition to helping them excel in school.
There are many types of youth art programs, and one should not limit the definition of "art" to painting. There is architecture, culinary arts, graphic design, animation, videography, music, sculpture, ceramics, glass-blowing, carpentry, performance art, poetry, multi-media, photography, fashion design, and many types of dance. Further, these are all beneficial trades/hobbies that will serve not only the student, but the community as a whole.
Art programs provide a healthy alternative to crime, video gaming, and boredom in general. Art programs are particularly important for students that struggle in high school. They can actually help teens with focus and discipline, while providing a sense of self-worth. Students should leave their program with a new knowledge that they make a difference, whether it be through the sharing of universal emotions, self-expression, or personal growth.
“I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world,
and a desire to enjoy the world.” – E.B. White
We know there is a way to do both. – Youth Art Programs
