More about Access Art & Youthlight:
Founded in 2000, Access Art is an after school arts and media center that empowers youth to use their artistic ability and their unique understanding of their environment as catalysts for social change in their communities. Access Art delivers youth-centered after school programming to address the artistic, emotional, and cognitive development of middle and high school participants. We achieve these goals by providing students with a safe space to create, positive adult role models, empowering activities, leadership development, and alternatives to violence and high risk behavior. Access Art enables participants to learn the expressive qualities of art, while investigating their own lives. They learn to translate their unique views and feelings about the world through the visual language of image making while learning valuable art related and vocational skills, gaining self-confidence and self worth, and realizing personal achievement.
