Abstract Expression (Painting )
Jewelry makingAbout Evolving Arts of America Evolving Arts of America founded in 2014 with a vision and goal to empower young people ages 10 to 17 to break habits that lead to trouble in school and in the streets. To do this, Evolving Arts of America uses the opportunity of hands-on creativity in visual art, music, fashion, dance, and film to help nurture a positive path. Our Mentoring programs in the arts foster positive changes through goal setting, self-discipline, skill development, and friendship. We want students to know that they can become anything in life, such as a painter, choreographer, musician, fashion mogul, film editor, videographer, and more. Students also work with a mentor to broaden their minds, enjoy different activities and develop a positive attitude towards their future in the arts. The typical mentor-youth relationship demands a commitment from the potential mentor. For most mentors, this experience changes their lives, taps their inner resources, and challenges their convictions. For the youth they help to mentor, the experience helps them believe that they can accomplish anything in life with hard work and dedication.
