YAW

Youth Arts Workshop is an inclusive Out of School Time program holding six-week Summer and twelve-week Fall programs for kids age 9-13. 

At YAW, we:

  • Provide year-round, summer and after-school programming for youth in grades 6, 7, and 8, offering creative development and a safe space for youth.
  • Create art-making opportunities for Asian American youth and fellow students from all backgrounds to share their experiences to develop cross-cultural understanding and connect with a sense of community.

At YAW, teens will:

  • Gain greater understanding of their own and each other’s experience
  • Develop critical thinking skills through dialogue and storytelling
  • Find ways to incorporate their experience and understanding into their art
  • Demonstrate improvement in specific artistic skills
