NUA is one of the most incredible communities I've ever been a part of. The studio gives everyone who walks through the doors permission to be themselves, to grow, to experiment, to be honest, and to share. There is some sort of indescribable magic that happens at NUA. Every single time I came to the studio I left feeling more hopeful and happier than when I arrived. This place is a positive influence on everyone who is a part of it in any way. I really wish that more people could experience it.
new urban ats is the bes place in the world i rather go there than to my own house .
my eperience at new urban arts has been the best .. it is the most awsomest place in the whole world
I was a mentor at New Urban Arts in 2006. It was a great experience. I remember everyone I met in my short time there. It was challenging, but really valuable. NUA does really amazing things for high school students. I remember a lot of my mentees telling me how terrible their public schools were: how art classes were cut entirely from the curriculum. And then to see these students doing something constructive and positive in their time outside of school was really great.
New Urban Arts is the healthiest nonprofit I have ever been involved with. The staff is totally dedicated and supportive. Working with students and artist mentors has been a constant source of inspiration, reflection, and growth. I am extremely grateful to be a part of such a vibrant learning community.
One of the most supportive and welcoming communities for young people and artists. Truly a leader in the field of youth development and arts communities.
I have been a student and intern at New Urban Arts for the past three years. While being there i have met a lot of great people who i will stay life longs friends with and i have also learned a lot. while working with artist mentors i had the chance to ask questions about things like college and get a real perspective on things.
I have volunteered at New Urban Arts for two years and I can say with assurance that it is one of the most innovative, open after school programs that exists.
I spent the summer working at New Urban Arts as a grad student. Having worked as an educator in the past at other youth education non-profits, I was most impressed by how deep and meaningful a connection the organization had to students and mentors. There is a real and lasting sense of community.
As a reserved, yet typical high school student searching for something to do after school, I was completely overwhelmed when I bumped into New Urban Arts. The second I stepped inside the studio I was immediately greeted warmly and given a tour. Upon deciding to return and become a member of New Urban Arts, I found myself also becoming a part of an incredibly supportive community. New Urban Arts allows students to think and create very freely without a trace of judgment or any expectations for that matter; this allows the student to be work without pressure. With the assistance of artist mentors, who learn just as much as their students do, students become immersed in the wonderful world of studio arts. After four years of being involved with New Urban Arts, I decided to become a mentor and give back to a place that has undoubtedly bettered my creative process.
