What We Want for Children

Young Audiences New York wants all children in our city to experience extraordinary art—both as creators and as audience members.

We believe that no matter what kind of work today’s children will go on to do as tomorrow’s grown-ups, they will need to know how to persevere, collaborate, solve problems creatively and assess their own progress.

What better way for children to learn all these important 21st Century learning and life skills—and experience joy too—than through arts in education!

“Our students are experiencing various forms of art that are not often included in the elementary schools. The opportunities to learn the Arts through YANY help broaden the children’s experiences. Students are able to demonstrate their talents with the assistance of expert artists.”
