UAY Art Programs provide young people with opportunities for creative expression, self-exploration and experimentation with materials and artistic techniques in a positive environment.

Eligibility: Youth 12-18 yrs. old. We prioritize youth facing barriers to participation in activities that spark their interest (e.g. youth of color, LGBTQ+, and/or low socioeconomic status).

Get involved: See "Upcoming activities" below.
