Youth Arts Empowerment (YAE) creative workshops provide young people with a safe place to develop self-empowerment through self-expression. Imagination, innovation and ingenuity is the welcomed thread that weaves its way through each workshop. Students, between the ages of eleven and nineteen, were provided art materials, shown various ways to use them and given creative assignments. The narrative paintings presented in this exhibit reveal the meaning, depth and importance of their creative process and power of art. The students’ exhibit, entitled, On the Cusp opens at the Pink Dog Creative Gallery, in the River Arts District on Friday, March 1, 2019 with an opening reception from 5 to 8pm. Youth Arts Empowerment is facilitated by its founder, Cleaster Cotton, artist, educator, and ALNUGE inventor. Cycle 1/Fall 2018 was the flagship six-session YAE Workshop Series, and was sponsored by Pink Dog Creative in partnership with the Arthur R. Edington Education & Career Center/Southside Arts and Agriculture Center. As one student commented, “I realized that I am an artist.”
