Youth Arts Collectives
Our youth artist collectives' goal is to empower the next generation of creative leaders in our community. Through a supportive environment, mentored by a local artist, youth are free to explore their creativity and gain a deeper understanding of self. Collectives are run my members (and supported by mentors) with the needs and interests of all involved being prioritized for all aspects of programing. Meeting times are once to twice weekly with times ranging from 2 to 3 hours in length, art materials and a light meal are provided for participants.
