BENEFITING: YOUNG AT ART CT INC
EVENT DATE: May 08, 2017
Young @ Art CT, a nonprofit organization, provides an opportunity for young artists to develop life skills, creative thinking, respect and appreciation of community in a positive environment.
To build a community art center where young artists can create and grow, in an environment which is supportive of their individuality and personal goals.
To provide a studio environment for young creatives which has materials available at their disposal, which will enable them to express their style, learn new skills, and collaborate with other artists.
To empower young creatives with the skills, business knowledge and confidence that will guide them into the world of professional art, and create commissioned opportunities which will provide a source of income and real world experience.
To develop relationships between the community and young artists by providing opportunities to see and experience the artwork in the creative process and engage in discussion with the artists about their work.
To develop and guide each creative’s artistic ability through personalized lessons and mentorship programs.
To provide a supportive out-of-classroom setting where creatives are allowed the time and freedom to explore and develop creative ideas.
WHY do I support Young @ Art?
I have experienced, first hand, the powerful impact the arts have on young lives. As a child I was exposed early to the joys of music, art, and theatre, a joy that I carried through my young life and which continued to blossom into my adulthood.
As funding for arts programs continue to be cut from the education cirrcuIum, I want every young adult with a passion for art to have a place where they can express themselves through that art, and where mentors will foster and support their passion and talent into a meaningful and satisyfying career.
In celebration of my Birthday, to celebrate Spring, and Honor my Mom (Dec. 22, 1928 - July 30, 2009) who passed her avid support and love of the arts to all her kids! It's my Birthday, but let's face it, Mom did all the work on that day! :) Hope you'll support me in this effort - May 8 - May 31, 2017!
