Mission:
Young Arts Arizona Ltd. serves challenged children through the arts. We exhibit their artwork in many public galleries and venues and in collaboration with many cultural agencies. We focus on children at risk who are socio-economically, physically, emotionally, learning disabled or have special needs, and empower them to express, stretch and respect themselves by exhibiting their artwork. We also teach art to children not served by other organizations.
Results:
In the past 12 years, Young Arts Arizona improved the lives and dispositions of thousands of children by putting them in touch with their creative genius. The resulting art exhibits have been seen by a staggering 12 million community members.

We are continually seeking out new collaborations for children's art programs as well as for exhibition spaces.
