Artist Ashley Young was awarded $4000 to engage youth aged 5-14 in participatory art workshops at the Boys and Girls Club. This project will expose participant to quality artistic experiences and introduce them new types of art. This project’s aim is to open doors of expression and creativity to a community who has had limited access to resources that give them the opportunity to express in this way. This experience is designed to create cultural awareness, increase confidence and self-esteem, and to encourage peer-to-peer collaboration.
