Organization Mission Statement: Youth Art Program (YAP) was established 2006 to help develop art awareness in underserved communities and educational systems in both the private and public sectors to ensure art is an essential part of every child's life.
Organization Description: Youth Art Program (YAP) will develop and follow young artists over a five-year period. It fosters creativity by forming community partnerships and collaborating with local art organizations to give our youth the best art experience possible.
“How to Create a Comic," is just one of many fun and interesting topics offered. YAP offers 6, 18 and 40-week programs. Classes are conducted for two hours each twice a week. The program will include field trips to local comic book stores and art galleries which are useful to reinforce artistic free will and creativity. For other class topics trips to botanical gardens and nature sites are also essential to providing a positive connection between art and nature.
