Art Saves Us (ASU) provides free art classes and transportation to Hmong youth, ages 8–19, as a productive, engaging alternative for out-of-school activities. ASU offers artistic instruction within a safe and comfortable atmosphere where youth develop a sense of identity, community and discipline through creative self-expression.
FALL and SPRING ASU sessions last for 12-15 weeks and each class culminates with a public showcase where youth perform and/or present their artwork to family, friends and community.
The summer’s edition of Art Saves Us is all about MUSIC! Beyond the Noise is specifically for youth ages 13-18 years old and will be held at CHAT’s Studio 220. Students work collaboratively around songwriting, vocal delivery, guitar, piano and percussion. The program begins July 11th, 2016 and runs through August 26h, 2016.
