What We Do:
Youth in Arts‚?? mission is to provide students with high quality experiences and instruction in the visual and performing arts, and to enrich the community with cultural events.Through artist residencies, professional performances, school and community events, and intensive out-of-school programs for teens, we help young people develop skills and confidence to share their unique creative voices. We maintain a roster of Mentor Artists that is both artistically and culturally diverse, enabling us to share a wide range of world cultures with students through the arts. We are dedicated to the principle of ‚??reaching all learners,‚?ù tailoring programs as needed for students of all abilities. Art is ultimately a form of communication, and we help our students share their artistic voices through culminating events (exhibits and performances) at school, as well as in our own YIA Gallery, the only art gallery in the North Bay dedicated to showcasing student work.
