Our goal is to inspire the next generation of creative artists through hands-on interactive experiences while partnering with professional artisans in varied genres. We believe by exposing young people to tangible examples of exemplary artistry that will inspire and invigorate.
Art is expressed in countless forms and we look to provide art participants a platform to express those various forms. We fuse street art and urban expression into music, food and performing arts for both our youth and adult attendees.
The Young Picasso Award (YPA) was created to celebrate the artistic gifts of today’s young artisans. We’ve partner with local school districts and CBOs, inviting artists from grades K-8 to enter artwork such as print, painting, photography or drawings.
