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.
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.
