About Pros Arts Studio
For over thirty years Pros Arts Studio has used the arts as a catalyst for youth development. A dedicated cadre of teaching artists and youth inspire and support each other as art makers and active citizens. We create youth-activated safe spaces through three core programs: In-School Residencies, Out-of-School-Time Programs, and Community Celebrations. In our vision of the future, Pros Arts Studio animates and elevates the quality of life for every citizen in our community through equal access to the arts.
The Youth Art Board and Each One/Reach One Teen Arts Mentorship Program links cultural, educational and art professionals with Pros Arts Studio teens interested in furthering their educational careers. By targeting both arts-minded and non arts-minded youth, the Each One/Reach One Program offers workshops, training, youth development and youth leadership opportunities along with additional events and programs to help build each student’s interest and capabilities as they decide their educational and career paths.
