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.
Our main focus are issues that directly affect us and other marginalized folks in our society.
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."
