Youth Art Exchange is expanding its work with SFUSD High Schools. As arts education is being cut due to budgeting in most high schools around the county, Youth Art Exchange partners with high schools to provide our great, high quality programming during the school day.
Music – Percussion + Performance When you think of your favorite music or song, you probably think first of the rhythm, the heartbeat that carries through the music. Most often this pulse is driven by the drumbeat, the percussion in the music. As a percussion student, you will gain experience in identifying and understanding different musical genres, their origins and cultural significance (Cuban, Brazilian, American Jazz, Pop Music and more). You will also learn general care and maintenance of percussion equipment and gain knowledge in how to teach basic percussion.
Graphic Arts + Apparel (Collaborative Printmaking + Fashion class) This class will be a multidisciplinary class and will include learning various printmaking techniques including block printing and silk-screening as well as an introduction to garment construction and sewing techniques. Students will explore the theme of identity in their concepts and designs.
