Youth, art and workforce development

For six weeks ArtWorks provides an opportunity for youth to create art (including music, dance, visual art, theater) and learn workforce skills.  I visited the ArtWorks program when we had placed a Cleveland Foundation summer intern at the sponsoring organization, Young Audiences of Northeast Ohio and was impressed with the skills of the teacher-artists, the commitment and passion of the students, and the incredible artwork that was created. 

Here are a few quick details:

  • To be eligible you must be a high school students entering 10th, 11th and 12th grades;
  • No previous arts experience is necessary;
  • Deadline to apply is Friday, March 20, 2009.
