2015 Summer Youth Arts Program
Queens Museum SYAP - Summer Youth Arts Program, is a free 6-week arts intensive open to MS/IS students in Queens. A true student-driven program, participants work directly with three teaching artists, guiding questions posed by the T.A's provide a conceptual framework for the art-making process. SYAP is a complete collaborative program from curriculum conception between T.A's and students through evaluation/assessment. The program is made possible by a 5-year grant through the Pierre and Tana Matisse Foundation, whose mission is to provide arts education in a community setting through a social justice lens.
