The Visual Arts program focuses on providing rich opportunities for young folks who have in interest in expressing themselves visually. Students enjoy weekly classes ranging from basic painting to graphic design. AS220 Youth students are able to create work, document it in their online portfolios and present at AS220 Youth showcases and gallery shows. For students who are ready to take their visual work to the streets, they can sell their custom art on the AS220 Youth Shop, join a mural crew and/or present their creative projects at external venues in and around the state. Students are highly encouraged to coordinate gallery openings, fashion shows and utilize AS220 Youth staff when applying to art schools. In the past, our Visual Arts program has been commissioned to create bus shelters for the city of Providence, repaint old electrical boxes and create large scale murals for local agencies, businesses and schools. Popular classes include film photography, product design, painting, murals, silk screening and laser cutting.
