Young At Art Museum has been at the forefront of arts education in Broward County, population 1.8 million, since 1989. Our mission: to provide inspiring, interactive experiences in which art is central to shaping young minds and enriching our community.
Young At Art features four innovative Exhibition Galleries:
ArtScapes, a thematic journey of art history where art crosses time, place and culture;
CultureScapes, a celebration and understanding of our culturally diverse world through the eyes and art of contemporary artists from Africa, Latin America, Cuba, Asia and Native America;
GreenScapes, encouraging children and adults to reconnect with nature by discovering the potential of art to call attention to environmental issues; and
WonderScapes, a world of Alice in Wonderland imagery dedicated to childhood development through art, literacy and play.
The museum’s Young At Art Institute features cutting edge equipment, studios and instruction in painting, drawing, ceramics, printmaking, photography and digital arts. The museum also includes a licensed Museum Preschool using an arts-based curriculum to prepare young children for kindergarten; National Traveling Exhibition Gallery; Teen Center with computers and recording studio for 250+ teens in grades 9-12; and Field Trip Experiences for students and teachers in grades PreK-8.
Renowned Artists – painters, sculptors, animators, filmmakers, textile, graffiti, woodblock, multimedia, muralists, fiber, mosaic, composers, photographers and lighting/industrial – have infused their creative voice into YAA through installations, guest appearances and instruction in the YAA Institute.
