YANY offers customized workshops for classrooms and community partners in all art forms. Our curriculums are research-based that support the development of critical thinking skills. We offer In-School, After-School Residencies and Assembly performances in music, dance, theater, visual arts, and digital arts.
A typical Arts Residency consists of 10-12 workshops. They are taught by professional, practicing New York City Artists. For program inquiries and partnership opportunities, please contact our program department or fill out this survey.
Informed by research, YANY engages children in a five-step process of artmaking: Plan, Create, Produce, Present and Reflect. Our curriculums integrate the creation of art with the development of critical life skills, including expanded social networks, increased self-efficacy and belief in a positive future. Our programs are designed to engage students in educational experiences with professional artists of the highest caliber through programs in music, dance, theater, and literary and visual arts that are carefully designed in collaboration with teachers and school administrators.
