Art, photographs and writing from students in our Summer 2014 Leadership Development Program. Youth in Arts invited exceptional young artists of differing abilities to spend a week at Youth in Arts exploring through visual art and theater what it means to stand up for yourself and others and to share your voice.
The program concluded with a multimedia presentation of music, dance, poetry and video for family and friends on July 18, 2014. Visit YIA Gallery between September 12th and 26th to see video excerpts, process walls and art from the program.
