Expressions

The Expressions group challenges youth to create arts & media projects from the ground up. Youth will first learn the basics from us and then they will plan and execute their original ideas. Inspired by our BOOF program, the Expressions group uses group art projects to build leadership skills.

This group will provide a space for youth to explore their interests and expand their skill set. Projects include photoshoots around the neighborhood and city, short films produced by the youth, and a final presentation. Afterschool and summer workshops are free of cost and are taught by experienced filmmakers and artists.

If you have a strong interest in arts & media and are looking to develop long-term creative and leadership skills, the Expressions group is for you. Recommended ages for this group is 13 to 18.

*Youth are free to come between 3p.m. to 4p.m. for homework time or free time

The Explore group introduces arts & media to youth as well as exposes them to new activities. Youth will learn the basics and put their new skills to the test with team projects. In addition to creative skills, the Explore group makes specific time for teaching life skills.

The priority for youth in this group is to show them that they can create art and projects just like anyone else. We encourage going outside the comfort zone and building confidence as youth navigate their new skill set.

If you have a basic interest in arts & media and are looking to explore new activities, the Explore group is for you. Recommended ages for this group is 10 to 12.

Explore Meeting Dates:

Tuesdays and Wednesdays
4p.m. to 6p.m.
*Youth are free to come between 3p.m. to 4p.m. for homework or recreational time
