FALL & SPRING
Each session, Youth Art Exchange offers visual, performing, and technical arts classes that meet multiple times each week, over the course of 13 weeks. Spring Session students participate in our annual Howth Street Block Party and showcase their work in a gallery show at Root Division; Fall Session culminates with the citywide San Francisco Youth Art Summit.
For the Summer Session, we offer 50 paid internships in the arts to public high school students in San Francisco. Interns receive professional experience in their medium and a stipend upon completion.
