Y-Arts Outreach: Our programs are mobile! We serve a number of schools and other community organizations by providing quality art experiences led by professional, working artist educators. We offer both in-school (outreach) and after school programs. Y-Arts has three strands of arts programing for students from K-12th grade. Each strand lasts a semester and follows a curriculum which fully familiarizes the student with the subject strand.
Introduction to Arts- Encompasses visual arts, crafts, mask making, sculpture, painting, portraiture, clay and murals. Music & Movement- Encompasses experiments in rhythm, sound, movement and dance, simple instruments and voice. Media & Performance- Encompasses performance poetry, acting for camera, digital photography, improvisation and digital filmmaking.
