Youth Art Institute

The Youth Art Institute provides an opportunity for youth who otherwise would not have the advantage of art-integrated education. In collaboration with the James E. Lewis Museum of Art, youth, parents, and educators receive art, performing and visual art instruction designed to improve academic performance, self-esteem, and provide meaningful cultural experiences.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text] MCBF gave a grant for its Saturday Program which exposes children to art activities to help foster learning, improve academic performance and inspire a new generation of college students matriculating through college. The program targets children and families with limited resources and little or no exposure to the arts.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]Morgan State University students are trained on art-based infused activities and help with the Saturday program. The program therefore helps both under-privileged children with exposure to the arts and college students with the opportunity to learn to teach and mentor younger children in their community.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]Learn more about this program[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
