Our next Release Day Camps coming up on December 19th, 20th , and 21st, 2016

 

  • Winter- themed art; making a snowman puppet,  a snowflake,  a lantern for the longest night of the year, paint trees in winter, maybe make a holiday gift  to give to someone…
  • Dreams for a New Year: think about what you want for your life, and make a poster to dream it into being with collage, drawing, and painting.

New Musical Heights for Teens

By | July 25th, 2015|KidPower, Programs|0 Comments

Urban Arts Academy guest artist Stefon Bionik Taylor facilitated a class introducing kids to the technology of making modern music. This video includes three of the six original songs that the 2014–2015 middle-school kids wrote, composed, arranged, recorded and performed.

Thanks to a grant from the Best Buy Foundation, Urban Arts was able to bring Stefon in as a guest artist and purchase a basic DJ rig, monitoring/recording system and microphone which we will continue to use as a creative resource.

“Watching the kids discover their creative voice is one of the most inspiring things I have done as an artist.”

—Stefon Bionik Taylor
