WHO WE ARE
The Young Artist Program is dedicated to creating a safe and nurturing space for teens in Philadelphia to learn and grow in an after school setting.
This program centers BIPOC, and LGBTQ+ identifying youth artists as well as adult leadership. We are committed to using art as a tool for personal growth and social change by providing students with both art instruction and opportunities for political activism.
We meet 3 days a week at the Crane Arts Building in South Kensington: our applications are open for 2022-2023.
If you're a teen and want to build community, make art, and connect with bipoc lbgtq+ artists, we want to hear from you!
WHAT WE DO
From collaborative to individual art projects: we host teen exhibitions, skill-sharing workshops with guest teaching artists, gallery visits, outdoor hangs, and much more
GROW WITH US
We're invested in carving a space where youth can express themselves and reclaim agency via art-making:
Help us grow by contributing to our needs: supplies, studio furniture, stipends etc...
"When you find a group of people you can actually smile with, that's when you realize you belong."
