AS220 Youth provides art-making workshops at its downtown Studio, the Rhode Island Training School (RITS), and UCAP, the Urban Collaborative Accelerated Program. Classes in photography, painting and drawing, hip-hop, music, dance, creative writing, sewing, computer design, and more are offered free of charge six days a week. Youth are given the opportunity to exhibit or perform work created in the workshops at the end of each term in AS220′s dedicated Youth Gallery and the Studio’s quarterly public showcases. In addition, young people develop personal portfolios that can be used to open doors to higher education and employment.
