Purpose:
Young At Art’s mission is to provide inspiring, interactive experiences in which art is central to shaping young minds and enriching our community. It is through our mission that we aspire to our vision of a community where art connects us and helps define our sense of place.
 


Projects:

Young At Art features four innovative Exhibition Galleries: ArtScapes, a thematic journey of art history where art crosses time, place and culture; CultureScapes, a celebration and understanding of our culturally diverse world through the eyes and art of contemporary artists from Africa, Latin America, Cuba, Asia and Native America; GreenScapes, encouraging children and adults to reconnect with nature by discovering the potential of art to call attention to environmental issues; and WonderScapes, a world of Alice in Wonderland imagery dedicated to childhood development through art, literacy and play. The museum’s Young At Art Institute features cutting edge equipment, studios and instruction in painting, drawing, ceramics, printmaking, photography and digital arts. The museum also includes a YAA Preschool using an arts-based curriculum to prepare young children for kindergarten; National Traveling Exhibition Gallery, Workshop Classrooms; Teen Center and Leadership Program for 500+ teens in grades 9-12; and offers Field Trip Experiences for students and teachers in grades PreK-8.
