Youth in Arts organized two wonderful multigenerational art events with the Canal Alliance’s University Prep students on March 24th and April 21st. The students, their parents and siblings worked together on collaging large puzzle pieces that when put together created the letters U and P (University Prep’s acronym). The letters are on a banner that will eventually hang at UP!.
Everyone wrote their goals for the future on the background of the banner in black sharpie, so that the large letters stand out against a black and white background.
All of the participants worked together at the end of the evening to put the puzzle pieces back together.
We had a great time with the UP! students, their families, the staff, and YIA mentor artists Sophie Cooper and Sofie Siegmann.
