For Teens and Culturally Diverse Populations.

Projects may be one time or an on-going project in such areas as: painting, drawing, clay, photography, sewing, quilting, knitting/crocheting, singing, dancing, acting/drama, music, writing, cooking, traditional craft, neighborhood or group art project, or other artistic mediums.


Any person who wants to do hands-on arts or creative activities and considers themselves a teen and/or culturally diverse. The Arts Council believes in equity, values people from all backgrounds, and encourages active participation. Whether diversity is within the realm of ethnicity, gender, physical and mental ability, race, sexual orientation, social class, faith, religion, educational background, family status, income, areas of origin, etc., this list Is limitless and with an overarching theme of tolerance and respect.


The activity must be free to participants. Participants should be teens and/or culturally diverse populations and include at least 5 people. Examples: If you are a Teacher or Presenter… you have a skill to share or know someone you want to learn from. If you are a Creator… you and your friends want to try something new, and learn to do it together.
