MISSION

Our free afterschool programs promote sustained mentoring relationships between high school students and trained artist mentors—who, together, engage in youth leadership, risk taking, collaboration, and self-directed learning. This Teen Open Studio is an afterschool creative space where students can come to learn hands on art practice by working alongside a practicing artist/mentor.  

The open studios will steer students towards career goals and embrace craft whether its in the visual arts, performance,  or a practical skill. 

 

 

Studios Programs:

  • Music Production with DJ SMI
  • Screen Printing w/ Quaishawn
  • Culinary Club
  • Maker Space w/ JeniBenz
  • Trevor C Dance Collective dance/movement
  • Visiting Artist Mentors

Ryan Arts will provide mentors and role models to steer students towards career goals and embrace craft whether it is in the arts or a practical skill. We are grounded in the belief that in order to fulfill the promise of our democracy, all young people, no matter their place in society, should have the opportunity to become more creative and independent thinkers.

PRACTICE!

A creative practice helps us to create new sites of creative experimentation and transformation; spaces in which we can create, collaborate, document, reflect, and most importantly, engage. It is meant to be accessible, loose, and most importantly, relational. Which is why it is also central to our practice as an organization.

  • Teen program (tues & thurs 2-5pm)

  • Independent workshops w/ teaching artists

  • Field trips to artist studios

  • SNACKS EVERYDAY! 2pm-3pm
