Teens get paid to dance, sing and play video games ... while learning workplace skills

Young Audiences' ArtWorks youth development program trains teens in 21st Century job skills and college readiness through the arts.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 
PRLog (Press Release) - Jul. 19, 2012 - Meet 150 teens representing a diverse group of neighborhoods, schools and communities who are working as paid arts apprentices this summer through Young Audiences’ ArtWorks. While creating high quality art like children’s clothing, mosaics and a documentary on The Halle Building, they are also learning 21st century workplace skills like timeliness, responsibility and collaboration … and they’re getting ready for college and beyond.

Teens give us feedback like, “I used to just watch a movie. Now I know every shot and how they got it,” “I had to step outside my comfort zone,” and “I really appreciate all the quality that goes into all my clothes.” For many, this program has shown them a future and a career in the arts they would never have considered realistic.

These teenagers are passionate, enthusiastic and creative; your audience will be inspired by their stories of working in these co-ops:
Architecture ● Ceramics ● Dance ● Drawing/Painting ● Fashion  
Film ● Installation Art ● Poetry/Literary Arts ● Recording Arts  
Theater ● Video Game Design ● Video Game Production ● Vocal Music

The Culminating Exhibit and Performance is a FREE and family-friendly performance, open to the public.  Some artwork will be for sale.
•   Wed., July 25 at The Halle Building, 6 - 7:30 p.m.
•   Wed., Aug 1 at Tri-C Metro Campus, 6 - 7:30 p.m.
