Expanded Arts Access
Extending the Reach of Arts Education
Expanded Arts Access Programming brings accessible and inspiring arts learning opportunities to young people who would otherwise not be reached, from special needs populations in hospitals; hospital schools and homeless shelters; to at-risk students in under-served schools that lack day-time arts instructors. YAMA staff works closely with site-partners to develop or adapt programming that meets the unique needs of each student population.
Our free and subsidized programming includes:
- Performance Programs – Our standard offerings for schools and other learning centers tailored for learners with special needs
- Year-long Residency Programs – Weekly, hour-long, hands-on workshops for sites that lack access to regular in-school arts programming
- Custom Residencies – Progressive, hands-on workshops building toward a culminating event or completed work, arts learning residencies can be customized to introduce a specific art form or as a special project to us an art form to meet a specific learning objective.
