Workshops

Our workshops are dedicated to provide programming for youth to give their imagination a creative learning experience. Our projects will develop a sense of community pride and self accomplishment for them, through the arts.

Adults also benefit from our group activities. We have several workshops for adults ranging from art based therapy to employee trainings.

anything hold you back from doing your very best.”
* Senator Joe Lieberman – “The skills, business acumen and confidence these young men and women have acquired through this program will benefit them throughout their lives.”
* Russell Simmons – Black Enterprise For Teens, “…young people focused on success”.
