Art and Leadership

Create Here

Northern Youth Project’s offers art programming that focuses on building self-confidence for youth ages 5-21 and creating opportunities for peer to peer leadership for our Interns. From traditional techniques to contemporary practices, NYP offers opportunties for young folks to explore their world while connecting to diverse cultural resources and the community’s wealth of talent and knowledge.

Local and visiting artists, and mentors, teach workshops in an expansive range of disciplines, including multi- media arts, poetry, drawing, mural painting, pottery, and recycled art.

NYP offers paid internships incorporating art practices that strive to link creativity to community engagement and build connections within our regional networks. Our interns come together with staff and mentors to identify areas of interest that matter to them. NYP works to ensure that their interests are met with projects that inform a positive sense of self and encourages involvement in our communities.
