Students Study Art at AVA

Y.E.S. House students started 4-month visual arts residencies at AVA Community Art Center and engage themselves in the creative process of self expression and healing.  Students are getting introduced to pottery, mosaic, watercolor, sculpture and clay.  For some of our youth, AVA residencies are the first time our youth have had an opportunity to explore and create art with no judgment attached, and to flow with where their creative inspiration would take them. This unique atmosphere and support has encouraged our youth to produce exquisite and one of the kind art pieces. It has been wonderful to see our youth flourish and become inspired to pursue their creative side during the visual arts residencies. Visit this link in May of 2015 to see the art pieces created.  To see the art pieces students created in 2014 go to the GALLERY link.
