When I was a student at New Urban Arts I learned more about myself and the arts in a few weeks than I would have learned in a year elsewhere. The teaching methods had empowered me as a student to realize my potential. NUA had sparked my interest in poetry, photography, welding, ceramics, and many other art mediums. It had opened up a world of expression that as an inner-city youth I had no idea I could participate in.

An amazing space, with amazing staff, student and volunteers. I learned so much about art and about myself in the two years I've been there.

It's an amazing place to learn different aspects of art. The volunteers are wonderful and always doing more than asked of to help you. All the conections and friendships I formed have formed here have helped me learn and grow as a person and as an artists. One of the most amazing places I've ever known.
