We bring technology to the art room

Ready to dive in?
Use technology to catch the wave!
Artsy Youth is the initiative focused
on computer and hands-on art education.
Let's experiment with graphic design and video projection, explore art history,
and make ideas alive.
Learn about shapes, forms, balance and composition through mixed-media and technology. We use video mapping projection, graphic design software and digital photography to explore the principles of design and basic elements of art.

We promote STEAM ( Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) activities and the development of practical problem-solving skills using art, design, and technology under the guidance of creative professionals. Working on mixed-media art installations, students learn about video-mapping projection, videography and photography in collaborative classes. As students get used to technology in the art room through interaction and play, they overcome anxiety and develop a lifelong skill set to use the technology in creative and fun ways.
Art History
Explore artistic techniques and history of arts by taking a close look at the life and work of famous artists, world leaders and your friends.

Studying artistic processes and expressive techniques of renown artists encourages critical thinking, and makes students rethink even most familiar masterpieces. Interactive presentations and video-documentaries based on art history encourage students and mentors interaction around close looking at art, guided conversation about artistic processes, and related hand-on activities. The classes are structured to facilitate the development of a personal artistic style of each student.
It is not enough to have talent and desire to be an artist. Learn rules like a pro to break them like an artist!

Academic drawing, painting and printing techniques are basics of our curriculum. We encourage aspiring artists to try out basic techniques on large-scale paintings with the assistance of digital tools. Aspiring artists should also know the theory and history of art, develop awareness of their own style and perception of the modern world so they can recognize creative opportunities and be prepared to take risks as an artist.

Social Justice
Challenge your stereotypes in a class where everyone is equal! Get your chance to be seen and heard!

We believe that early introduction to art and technology can elevate students from underrepresented communities. Social stereotypes towards gender and race in art and technology limit the number of role models from underrepresented groups and make it difficult for their members to imagine themselves as creative professionals. Arts and technology studies have a positive impact on the lives of students from underrepresented groups because they encourage deep learning of applied digital skills, build self-confidence and direct
future careers.
